Food Security: Building the climate resistant food system of the 21st century

Food security is the most important issue of our time, given the dramatic advance of climate change and increasingly severe weather events as well as population growth, increased urbanization, aging population, changing dietary patterns, and decreased arable land. 

Meeting future demand will require a change in the status quo and a reinvention of our global food system. This will mean rethinking and restructuring everything from investments in production and infrastructure to our welfare programs and dietary patterns. 

This paper offers to consider the issue of global food security through different lenses including megatrends, technology, value chain disruption, urbanization, changes in consumption patterns. and include the requirements from the various parties involved: Companies, Governments, R&D centers and Citizens.
