The World Economic Forum, in collaboration with McKinsey & Company, has launched the report, “Realizing a New vision for Agriculture: A Roadmap for Stakeholders”. The study focuses on the power of agriculture to drive food security, environmental sustainability and economic opportunity. Its aspirations are high, not least of which are to increase production by 20 percent while decreasing emissions by 20 percent and reducing the prevalence of rural poverty by 20 percent each decade.
The report spotlights innovative models for collaboration that can spark the necessary step-change we need in agriculture. It also highlights the vital contributions the private sector can make to implementing sustainable agriculture systems globally.
The full report is available online.
