Karen Brooks, World Bank, on Re-energising Global Agricultural Productivity

Interview with Karen Brooks, Africa region sector manager for Agriculture and Rural Development at the World Bank, on Re-energising Global Agricultural Productivity

At the G20 Summit in Cannes, world leaders agreed for the first time to commit to sustainably increase agricultural production and productivity in order to feed a world population expected to reach more than 9 billion people by 2050. To that end, they estimated that agricultural production will have to increase by 70% over the same period. In order to achieve this goal, agreement was reached to further invest in the agriculture sectors of the poorest countries. Furthermore, it was established that market information and transparency should improve in order to make international markets for agricultural commodities more effective and mitigate the adverse effects of excessive price volatility.
