In Saturday's Guardian (27th May), Barack Obama spoke passionately about a number of the biggest challenges facing the world, and feeding a growing global population in the face of a changing climate was the first on his list. ‘We can still act and it won’t be too late’ he said.

His solutions include:

  • producing food more efficiently with fewer GHGs
  • unleashing creativity and innovation in science and engineering
  • putting technology and data into farmers hands
  • working with farmers to meet their needs

He also talked about the need to eat healthily and waste less food. The entire article is available here.
