New Book: One Billion Hungry: Can We Feed the World?

In One Billion Hungry: Can We Feed The World?, Gordon Conway explains the many interrelated issues critical to our global food supply from the science of agricultural advances to the politics of food security. He emphasises the essential combination of increased food production, environmental stability, and poverty reduction necessary to end endemic hunger on our planet.

Conway addresses a series of urgent questions about global hunger:

  • How we will feed a growing global population in the face of a wide range of adverse factors, including climate change?
  • What contributions can the social and natural sciences make in finding solutions?
  • And how can we engage both government and the private sector to apply these solutions and achieve significant impact in the lives of the poor?

He argues that we can address these fundamental challenges if we use technology paired with sustainable practices and strategic planning.
