A Report by the World Resources Institute, World Bank, UNEP, UNDP that tries to answer the question of how we can sustainably feed the nearly 10 billion people that are estimated to live on the planet by 2050. It is lined out that ]food demand is on course to increase by 56% in the 2010-2050 period, and demand for animal-based foods by 70%.  Meeting this demand requires reducing food waste, shifting to plant-based foods, increasing fish supply, and improved food production without expanding farmland. The report is stresses that this needs to be accomplished without “increasing emissions, fueling deforestation or exacerbating poverty.”
