Population growth forecasts suggest that one of the major challenges in coming decades will be to adapt agricultural product supply to the growth in demand for food, while at the same time ensuring more sustainable production, in both social and environmental terms. The trends observed at present – the increase in food prices that is perturbing agricultural markets, the emergence of new agricultural production areas, the effect of climate change on the variability of agricultural yields, opportunities relative to bio-energy and changes to diet, notably in developing countries – will have effects on the balance between supply and demand at the global level. Preserving the resources of our planet, while alleviating poverty and reducing inequalities, is a major challenge for sustainable development, as well as for global geopolitical equilibria and relationships between industrialised Northern countries and developing countries.
