WORLD HUNGER: A CRISIS NOW AND A CATASTROPHE IN 2050?

Marina Carcea (ICC Past President), Sam Millar (Campden BRI, ICC National Delegate) and Roland Poms (ICC Secretary General) represented ICC and the Healthgrain Forum at The Economist Event "Feeding The World", 13 February 2014, The HAC, London, UK. This international event addressed major global challenges such as: Global population projected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050; Limited agricultural land and resource scarcity; Infrastructure and biodiversity challenges; Pressures of a changing climate. The event provided provocative debate and inspired for action. For ICC and the HEALTHGRAIN Forum the acquired deeper insight in food security related challenges will help guide actors and collaborators to efficient strategies and supportive activities to increase food security and fight hunger in the world. The recently established food security working groups and research activities will benefit greatly from the outcome of this meeting.
