Population, Food, and the Environment

  • Krishnan Namboodiri
Part of the The Springer Series on Demographic Methods and Population Analysis book series (PSDE)


Is the earth’s capacity to produce food high enough to keep food production in step with population growth? Is feeding the growing population of the world just a matter of producing enough food? Which countries continue to be the major exporters of food? What does the future hold in respect to feeding those who come to dinner? Is mass starvation a thing of the past? In a not too distant future can we all expect to get enough food to satisfy our hunger before going to bed each night?
