Resumen: How can we feed the world without destroying it? By 2050, there will be nearly 10 billion people on the planet. Feeding everyone in a way that ensures healthy nutrition without exacerbating poverty, fueling deforestation and increasing emissions will be impossible without major changes to the global food system. The report shows there is no silver bullet: we need to produce a lot more crops, meat and milk on the same land; lower food waste and demand for beef and lamb; use innovative technologies to reduce emissions; stop deforestation and restore forests; and much more. WRI offers a five-course menu of solutions that show it is possible to feed everyone sustainably and quantifies how far each solution can get us.
