INFOGRAPHIC | How Will the World Feed 9 Billion People by 2050?

One-third of the world’s available food either spoils or gets thrown away before it ever reaches a plate—that’s enough to feed everyone in the world for two months. And with 1.2 billion people food insecure or undernourished, millions of vulnerable smallholder farmers losing profits they can’t spare, and a population expected to increase by 2 billion by 2050, we cannot afford to allow these losses to continue.

Fortunately, food loss and waste are preventable, and solutions already exist. From wider adoption of technologies that keep food fresh longer to models of private sector engagement that ensure farmers have steady buyers for their yields, we can ensure more food gets to more people.
