Agrimonde-Terra, a foresight exercise on land use and food security in 2050

le 01/04/2016

Scenario-building method and conceptual framework.

The Agrimonde-Terra foresight project is pursuing the work of Agrimonde, which explored pathways to feed 9 billion people in a sustainable way in 2050. It also highlighted the complex array of interactions between food (in)security, land and its uses, and the environmental impact of human activities.

The aim of the Agrimonde-Terra foresight exercise is to prepare rigorous and coherent land-use scenarios that will:

• contribute to international debates on land use and food security and help international, regional and national decision makers in their discussions on public policies relating to land use and/or food security issues;
• help develop a shared understanding of the links between the natural and human processes that affect land uses and food security;
• help identify relevant future questions for research.
