A Global Crisis of Land Use and Agriculture

Jonathan Foley, Stockholm Resilience Centre

Seminar with Professor Jonathan Foley, Director, Institute on the Environment, University of Minnesota, US Tuesday 1 June, 2010.

As the international community focuses on climate change as the great challenge of our era, it is ignoring another looming problem — the global crisis in land use. With agricultural practices already causing massive ecological impact, the world must now find new ways to feed its burgeoning population and launch a “Greener” Revolution.
