Climate Change and Global Food Security

In order to feed their burgeoning populations, developing nations will need to double cereal production by the year 2050. This increase will have to come from existing land, as little potential exists for bringing new land under cultivation -- a daunting prospect when one realizes that increased use and significantly higher concentrations of carbon dioxide have led to a severe depletion of the carbon pool in the world´s soils. This is especially telling in developing countries where tropical climates further compromise the soil´s ability to recover.
