Food and Cities
The United Nations projects that the global population will reach 9.8 billion people by 2050. The growing global population, coupled with increasing rural-urban migration, could add about 2.5 billion people to urban areas by 2050 — 68% of the total population. The majority of these will reside in Africa and Asia. There is a critical need to increase the supply of food in cities to ensure sustainable food access for the growing urban population.
