Knowledge is the New Paradigm for the Future of Food and Agriculture

FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva recently gave a keynote speech at the Chatham House think tank, which pointed to FAO's recent report, The Future of Food and Agriculture: Trends and Challenges. The report identifies 15 major trends and 10 challenges that policymakers must be prepared to tackle in the coming years. Da Silva’s speech emphasizes the increasing importance of the role of the consumer, especially as forms of malnutrition such as obesity are rapidly growing.
