    Over the coming 35 years, agriculture will face an unprecedented confluence of pressures, including a 30 percent increase in the global population, intensifying competition for increasingly scarce land, water and energy resources, and the existential threat of climate change. To provide for a population projected to reach 9.3 billion in 2050 and support changing dietary patterns, estimates are that food production will need to increase from the current 8.4 billion tonnes to almost 13.5 billion tonnes a year.

    August, 2001

    Women play important roles as producers of food, managers of natural resources, income earners, and caretakers of household food and nutrition security.

    remained persistent in the first half of this decade. The
    evidence suggests that poverty is higher among those who
    live in families that are large, have many unemployed
    members, and have low education levels. The poor are also
    geographically concentrated in rural areas and a few
    regions. The main message of this report is that the slow
    and volatile growth was doubly disadvantageous. The first

    constant for millennia, but over time the planet has added 6
    billion people. Water is essential to human life and

    economic development. The ultimate goal is to achieve a
    sustainable balance between the resources available and the
    societal requirement for water. In this evaluation the
