Summary
Nearly a third of the world's population suffer from hunger or malnutrition. Feeding them and the projected population of 10 billion people by 2050 has become a high-profile challenge for governments, multilateral institutions, big philanthropy and even the Fortune 500. This has unleashed a steady march of initiatives to double food production within a generation. But will doing so tax the resources of our planet beyond capacity? In this sobering essay, scholar-practitioner Eric Holt-Gim nez argues that the ecological impact of doubling industrial food production would be socially and environmentally catastrophic, and would not feed the poor. We already have the technology, resources and expertise to feed everyone. What is needed is a thorough transformation of the global food regime - one that increases equity while producing food and reversing agriculture's environmental impacts
