Just published: "Agrimonde-Terra: the narrow roads to global food security", Agrimonde-Terra foresight study, conducted by scientists from CIRAD and INRA with the support of global expert

How will agricultural land occupation change in the coming decades? As a result of which factors? How will the tensions between food security and climate change mitigation pan out? The Agrimonde-Terra foresight study, conducted by scientists from CIRAD and INRA with the support of global experts, set out to answer these questions via five land use and food security scenarios. The results of the Agrimonde-Terra foresight study, presented on 24 June in Paris, highlight the main levers for action, in particular the need for global land use governance that takes account not just of the agricultural and food sectors, but also other economic sectors. This should involve all the various stakeholders, and result in more diversified diets, new international trade regulations, more integrated crop and animal production systems and guaranteed access to land for a wide range of agricultural structures.
