By 2050, the World Bank says that global food production must rise by at least 70% to curb the challenge of having to feed 9 billion people. Without strong adaptation and mitigation measures, climate change will reduce food crop yields worldwide over the next 50 years. Studies have shown that effective investment in agriculture could be three times more beneficial to the poor than growth in other sectors.
