      The sustainable way forward 

      Food production will be increasingly impacted by climate change – from the increased frequency of droughts, storms and other extreme weather events. 

      Food production is in turn a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions as well as to water scarcity and wider biodiversity issues. Increasing demand for food and pressure on finite resources means more food will need to be produced with less. R&D investment in sustainable food production is key to finding solutions for a growing global population.
