Over 200 senior executives from 25 countries and all continents attended the conference.

Food is now at the very top of the global agenda.

By 2050, the global population will surpass 9 billion people. At the same time, the world’s agricultural systems will be increasingly challenged by water scarcity, climate change and volatility, raising the risk of production shortfalls.

Economist Conferences are launching an inaugural Feeding the World summit, to deliver fresh insight into solving the critical food challenges. Gathering progressive experts from the fields of agribusiness, policy,international agencies, science and the NGO community, you’ll be able to participate in panel debates and discussions, led by editors from The Economist Group.
