The future needs an agricultural system that produces about 50 percent more food to feed the world’s 9 billion people by 2050; that provides food for adequate nutrition; that substantially raises the levels and resilience of incomes and employment for most of the world’s poor (75 percent of which live in rural areas and mostly rely on agriculture for their livelihoods); that provides environmental services, such as sequestering carbon, managing watersheds, and preserving biodiversity; and that uses finite land and water resources more efficiently. This system can be achieved with more and better investment in the sector, with more attention to addressing cross-sectoral linkages between agricultural actions and outcomes for economic growth, livelihoods security, the environment, nutrition, and public health.
