Food and Agriculture
By 2050, the world will be faced with the challenge of feeding another two billion citizens as the world's population is likely to reach nine billion. The subsequent impact on the food security of millions of people will be huge, as the demand for food rises in a world of limited resources.The challenge of meeting this demand in a sustainable way is enormous. Taking into account the effects of more frequent and extreme weather events, such as flooding and drought, the challenge grows even more serious.
Under this programme,FARIAD is focused on increasing crop production while ensuring environmental sustainability, adaptability to climate change and affordability for marginal and small farmers. Key to this plan is ensuring that improved inputs and technologies are taken to rural farmers and Science knowledge and technology information on modern methods of farming through capacity-building to rural farmerst are disseminated to rapidly increase agricultural productivity in ways that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.
In addition,we improve access to markets and value chains, such as improved value chains and timely access to price and market information; standards for food products; the role of information and communication technologies; post-harvest, storage, and processing techniques; product and market development.
The FARIAD has four broad approaches to tackling food security:
