Overall, this panel focuses on the roles and collaboration efforts between participants in the public, non-profit, and the private sectors, with the aim to establish a comprehensive framework in addressing the present and future challenges and solutions in eliminating world hunger. According to Earth Policy Institute, by 2050 there will be nearly 10 billion people to feed on this planet. To ensure sustainable global food security we need to address the challenges pertaining to the management and practices used in the agricultural and food related sectors. At the same time, we need to consider the specific nature of the problems, as well as their potential solutions. “Nearly a third of the world’s cropland is losing topsoil faster than new soil is forming , making land less fertile and reducing crop yields” (The Globalist, 2014). Innovation is key to sustainably addressing the challenges facing global agriculture. Increasingly, public private partnerships are exploring collaborative ways to sustainably address the increasing demands of their customers. This work is pivotal as the world faces increased pressures from climate change, as well as the demands of a growing global population.
