Description: Th e relevance of this volume is very timely. With evidence on climate change accumulating, the issue of feeding 9.5 billion people in 2050 climbs high up in the international agenda. Th ere is little doubt that global warming represents for mankind the huge challenge of making development sustainable. Hence, despite current eff orts, these two issues, food security and sustainability, remain unsettled. It is not just that the world needs to produce more food to accommodate rapidly rising demand due to fast-growing populations and incomes, but food systems are also under severe stress due to climate change, there is a diet shift to animal products and resource degradation.
