Feeding the world in 2050: join the debate

“How to Feed the World in 2050?” –  How can we ensure that enough food is available for, and accessible to a growing world population? This is the question that is presently being debated on the Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum).

The FSN Forum invites interested parties to discuss these and other questions related to the future of agriculture. The topic has been raised by Hartwig de Haen, former Assistant Director General of FAO Economic and Social Development Department.

To join the discussion, please register online here or participate by requesting a temporary subscription at fsn-moderator@fao.org. Contributions can be made in English, French or Spanish.

Results of the debate will help prepare the High-Level Expert Forum on “How to Feed the World in 2050”, scheduled to take place at FAO headquarters in Rome on 12-13 October 2009.

For more information on this event, please consult the forum’s webpage.  Specifically, a summary of the online discussion will be presented to attendants of the meeting while their reactions will be posted on the FSN website for additional feedback.
