Challenges and Projections for Global Agriculture and Food Security

  1. 1. Challenges and Projections for Global Agriculture and Food Security Sherman Robinson and the Impact Team International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) April 2014
  2. 2. www.ifpri.org Outline  IFPRI’s baseline projections: • Drivers of agricultural growth • The IMPACT Model • Data for Central Asia • Base scenario results  Climate challenges (IPCC 2014)  AgMIP results (PNAS 2014)  The role of technologies (Rosegrant et al. 2014)
  3. 3. www.ifpri.org Drivers of Agricultural Growth and Food Security  Demand drivers • Population growth: 9 billion people in 2050 • Urbanization: 50% in 2008, 78% in 2050 • Income growth • Oil prices • Biofuels and bioenergy • Conservation and biodiversity http://www.government.nl/dsc?c=getobject&s= obj&objectid=101492
  4. 4. www.ifpri.org  Rapid income growth and urbanization – effects on diets and patterns of agricultural production • Increased consumption of fruits and vegetables • Rapid growth in meat consumption and demand for grains for feed • Change in diets to convenience foods, fast foods • Higher food energy, more sugar, fats and oils • Half of growth in grain demand will be for Livestock feed • Increased pressure on land and water http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fast_food_( 282678968).jpg Drivers of Agricultural Growth and Food Security
  5. 5. www.ifpri.org  Supply drivers • Climate change • Water and land scarcity • Investment in infrastructure • Investment in agricultural research • Policy http://fbae.org/2009/FBAE/website/images/ btcotton_rice.jpg http://media.npr.org/assets/img/2012/07/18/dro ught18- 8b9a6db718dda8f9f968da97316f9c0a2daa365 5-s40-c85.jpg Drivers of Agricultural Growth and Food Security
  6. 6. www.ifpri.org The IMPACT Model  International Model for Policy Analysis of Agricultural Commodities and Trade  Global partial equilibrium model • Food model • Water models • Crop models • Malnutrition model
  7. 7. www.ifpri.org IMPACT Model – Schematic
  8. 8.  Hydrology Model  Water Basin Management Model  Water Stress Model  Multimarket Model: crops, sugar, oilseeds, livestock/meat  SPAM - Spatial Production Allocation Model  Land-Use Model  DSSAT Crop Models  Biofuel Model  Livestock Model IMPACT Suite of Models 8
  9. 9. IMPACT version 3 159 • Countries 154 • Water Basins 320 • Food Production Units • 58 Agricultural commodities 9
  10. 10. Production, Exports and Imports in Central Asia 10
  11. 11. Central Asia’s Shares of Global Cotton Exports National Exports as a Percent of Global Exports 11
  12. 12. Cotton Yields in Central Asia 12 Country Yield Ratio # Regions Kazakhstan 80.3 7 Kyrgyzstan 95.6 2 Tajikistan 63.0 1 Turkmenistan 65.8 3 Uzbekistan 86.0 2 Ratio to global average (%), FAO Data, average for 2004-2006. Regions: water basins
