Hans Herren: Food systems of the future

How can we feed the 9 billion people of the future? Why are some parts of the world plagued by
obesity and others by famine? In a germanic manner Hans Herren is explaining in detail and by detailed charts and figures the scope of the biodiversity and climate change problems. The audience seems to be losing trail…
In short the solution is to refrain from binge eating and stop wasting food in the rich world, and to farm more environment friendly.
We spend 1 billon dollar per day in farm subsidies, and 1 billion per YEAR to help the developing countries farm sustainably.
“Business as usual is not an option.”
