The American news platform Bloomberg launched a new video ‘How to feed 10 billion people’ in the series called ‘Problem Solved’. These videos focus on how scientists are trying to solve some of the biggest challenges the world faces.

How to feed 10 billion people by 2050? That is one of the questions to which our NPEC research can contribute!
