FAO studies expect that up to 50% more food will need to be produced in the current food system to be able to feed this growing global population. Increasing production is not enough. What we produce and how we produce it is more important. The food system needs to provide products that feed the population in a way that is as efficient and healthy as possible, while having an environmental impact that is as low as possible.
Rikolto's Food for the Future programme wishes to fuel the debate by bringing together people from the business community, governments, consumers and civil-society organisations. It explores new possibilities in Belgium, Peru, Tanzania and Indonesia. Young people are actively involved in this programme.
Why young people?
