How can we feed future generations?

Information is beautiful! Farming First have launched a six part infographic called “Agriculture and the Green Economy“. Using data from leading research organisations, the infographic tells the story of agriculture’s potential contribution to building a green economy.

Everyone needs agriculture. Agriculture feeds our entire population and produces fibre for clothing, feed for livestock and bioenergy. Particularly in the developing world, agriculture contributes significantly to GDP growth, leads the way in poverty reduction and accounts for the lion’s share of employment opportunities, especially for women. Agriculture also has one of the highest potentials for reducing carbon emissions and helping vulnerable people adapt to climate change.

Part 1 of the Farming First infographic “Agriculture and the Green Economy” looks at how we can achieve food security. Click on the image below to go to the full infographic where you can also embed this image or tweet it.
