Nearly a third of the world's population suffers from hunger or
malnutrition. Feeding them - and the projected population of 10
billion people by 2050 - has become a high-profile challenge for
states, philanthropists, and even the Fortune 500. This has
unleashed a steady march of initiatives to double food production
within a generation. But will doing so tax the resources of our
planet beyond its capacity? In this sobering essay,
scholar-practitioner Eric Holt-Gim nez argues that the ecological
impact of doubling food production would be socially and
environmentally catastrophic and would not feed the poor. We have
the technology, resources, and expertise to feed everyone. What is
needed is a thorough transformation of the global food regime - one
that increases equity while producing food and reversing
agriculture's environmental impacts.
