  • The New Normal?A Tighter Global Agricultural Supply andDemand Relation and its Implications for Food Security Mark W. Rosegrant, Director Simla Tokgoz, Research Fellow Prapti Bhandary, Senior Research Assistant Environment and Production Technology Division ABARESs Outlook 2012 Annual Conference Canberra, Australia March 6-7, 2012
  • Outline Drivers of agricultural growth and food security Model description Baseline projections of supply, demand and food security Alternative scenarios for crop productivity and energy price Conclusions and policy implications www.ifpri.org
  • Drivers of AgriculturalGrowth and Food Security
  • Drivers of Agricultural Growth and Food Security Demand drivers • Population growth: 9 billion people in 2050 • Urbanization: 2008 = 50% urban; 2050 = 78% urban • Income growth • Biofuels and bioenergy • GHG mitigation and carbon sequestration • Conservation and biodiversitywww.ifpri.org
  • Drivers of Agricultural Growth and Food Security  Supply drivers • Water and land scarcity • Climate change • Energy prices • Investment in agricultural research • Science and technology policy • Management and governance reformwww.ifpri.org
  • Model Description
  • The IMPACT Model IMPACT – “International Model for Policy Analysis of Agricultural Commodities and Trade” Representation of a global competitive agricultural market for crops and livestock Global • 115 countries • 281 food production units (countries x river basins) • 46 agricultural commodities www.ifpri.org
  • Flow Chart of IMPACT Modelwww.ifpri.org
  • Baseline Projections of Supply, Demand and Food Security

  • Alternative Scenarios for CropProductivity and Energy Price
  • Scenarios Compared to Baseline Scenario 1 – Yield Increase • Higher crop productivity growth rate resulting in higher crop yields • Increase the productivity growth rate for each crop such that the projected crop prices in 2050 in real terms are the same as crop prices in 2010 in real terms Scenario 2 – Energy Shock • Doubling of oil prices in 2050 compared to baseline • Higher fertilizer price (fertilizer price growth rate increased by 75%) www.ifpri.org

  • Conclusions and Policy Implications
  • Conclusions World prices of most cereals and meat are projected to increase in real terms in the coming decades with business-as-usual Rising prices will slow food demand growth for poor consumers, adversely affecting food security and human well being Population growth in developing world will lead to rapid growth in cereal demand www.ifpri.org
  • Conclusions Rising income and rapid urbanization in Asia will change composition of demand towards meat and dairy On the supply side, water scarcity, climate change, land degradation and lack of necessary resources will reduce yield growth rates With declining water availability and land for profitable cultivation, expansion of area will contribute little to future production growth www.ifpri.org
  • Conclusions Intensified linkages between energy and agricultural markets • through growth in biofuels production • through higher input costs to agricultural production Developments in energy markets impact agricultural markets and affect food security in developing countries www.ifpri.org
  • Energy Policy Implications Adopting a low-carbon fuel standard (like the California policy, versus the existing national RFS) would shift ethanol production away from grains and towards other lower-carbon feedstocks Reduce OECD subsidies and mandates for biofuels; liberalize trade in biofuels Reduce water, energy, fertilizer subsidies www.ifpri.org
  • Agricultural Productivity Increasing crop productivity: agricultural research, water management, and rural investment • Emphasis on crop breeding (including biotechnology) targeting abiotic and biotic stresses • Water harvesting, precision agriculture, minimum tillage, integrated soil fertility management, integrated pest management, reduce post harvest losses • Rural infrastructure investment to improve access to markets, information, credit, inputs www.ifpri.org
