By 2050, the world’s population will be approximately 9.7 billion of which almost 70% will live in large urban centres. Cities are already barely coping with the complex changes surrounding climate and food supply. Wageningen Economic Research is engaged in research on how we can ensure the future food and nutrition security worldwide.
It goes without saying that urban regions throughout the world must adapt to the demands of the future. But how do we accomplish this? Peter Ravensbergen, a business developer at Wageningen Economic Research:
A precondition for this is that this food has been obtained in a sustainable and reliable manner. Wageningen Economic Research has developed methods that help regions complete the transition, based on data, models, expertise and interaction.
