Transforming rural livelihoods and landscapes: sustainable improvements to incomes, food security and the environment.

By 2050...

  • There will be over 9 billion people on the planet.
  • We will need to produce 60% more food.
  • Over 60% of the population will be living in cities.
  • Nearly 40% of the population will be under 18.


But...

  • 40% of the population will still be working in agriculture.
  • Smallholders and family farms will produce over 70% of world food.
  • Over 1 billion people will still be at risk of malnutrition and hunger.
