New Risks and Opportunities for Food Security: Scenario Analyses for 2015 and 2050

The International Food Policy Research
Institute’s (IFPRI’s) International Model for Policy
Analysis of Agricultural Commodities and Trade
(IMPACT) provides insight into the management of
these risks through appropriate policy actions. By
projecting future global food scenarios to 2050, the
IMPACT model explores the potential implications
of policy inaction and action in several main risk
areas and the effects on child malnutrition in the
developing world, commodity prices, demand,
cereal yields, production, and net trade.

The global food system will experience an unprecedented confluence of pressures over the next
40 years. On the demand side, global population size will increase from nearly seven billion today to

Will Climate Change Affect Food and Water Security in Russia?

Although societies adapt and evolve along
with their climate, this has been an especially difficult task for Russia because of

produce enough food for its people. While
the soils can be rich, the rains can be
fickle, and large parts of the main agricultural areas have been affected by severe
drought at least once or twice a decade
during the 20th century. Given the severity
