By 2050, 2 billion more people are expected to be vying for food and energy. Access to fresh water and arable land will be heavily constrained. And the food supply for the world's 9 billion people will be increasingly produced under flood conditions, drought or both, as climate change accelerates.

Cornell World Food Prize Laureates discussed international food and development of food policy at a daylong symposium, "Food Security in a Vulnerable World," held September 12, 2013.
