Research at FSE


Productive food systems and their environmental consequences are at the core of the program. With roughly 1 billion hungry people in the world, three-quarters of which live in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their livelihoods, improving agricultural productivity will be central to any effort at alleviating hunger. At the same time, agriculture is one of the largest contributors to global environmental degradation, including land use change and associated ecosystem loss, air and water pollution, and contribution to global climate change. Research at FSE seeks to generate solutions that address these problems simultaneously, shedding light on how to feed the world without destroying the environment in the process.
