  • Impacts of Climate Change

    By 2030, nine out of 10 of the major crops will experience reduced or stagnant
    growth rates, while average prices will increase dramatically as a result,
    at least in part, due to climate change.

  • Energy Demand

    By 2030, energy demand is expected to increase
    as much as 50%, driven mostly by developing world
    demand. More crops are likely to be diverted for
    use as biofuels, doubling or even tripling as a
    proportion of total use.

  • LAND USE EFFICIENCY

    Through 2030, agriculture's land use efficiency will need to improve.
    While per capita availability of land continues to drop, per capita consumption rises
    in both developed and developing countries.

  • WORLD BIODIVERSITY

    By 2030, around 10% of today's biodiversity will be
    lost (based on 2000 levels), largely due to expanding
    infrastructure and agriculture as well as climate change.

  • AGRICULTURAL MITIGATION POTENTIAL

    By 2030 agriculture's carbon mitigation potential could reach as much as
    7.5% of total global emissions, depending on the price of carbon and adoption
    of agricultural productivity measures.
