This Pecha Kucha style presentation was given by Sayed Azam-Ali, Chief Executive Officer of Crops For the Future (CFF), at the 2015 Global Landscapes Forum in Paris, December 2015. The Forum is the biggest event related to the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry.
In December 2015, world leaders meet in Paris with a goal to limit CO2 emissions to keep global temperatures within 2°C above pre-industrial levels. Even if they succeed in this goal, a warming planet will challenge food production at a time when burgeoning population requires unprecedented amounts of food, water and energy. By 2030, we will need 50% more food and energy and 30% more fresh water. How will we feed in a hotter world?
