FAO and Post 2015

Among the most pressing challenges facing the world today is feeding a growing global population projected to increase from over 7 billion currently to over 9 billion by 2050. This challenge is compounded by the additional threats of climate change, increasing water and land scarcity, soil and land degradation, and a deteriorating natural resource base, threats that will mainly hurt the world’s poor and vulnerable, especially those living in rural areas who represent the vast majority of the around 800 million hungry.

Featuring the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ (FAO) 14 themes of focus in the post-2015 development agenda, this infographic highlights the powerful interlinkages that exist between food security and the emerging priorities of a sustainable development agenda.
