Irish President, Michael D. Higgins, has described the challenge of feeding the world in 2050 as “the greatest moral problem facing us all.” This new IIEA infographic explores some headline statistics which reveal the sheer scale of the future challenge and the depth of current global inequalities. In particular, the infographic illustrates the interconnections between water, energy and food.

See this blog for further information on the challenge of feeding the world in 2050 and this new IIEA video infographic for a simple explanation of the water-energy-food nexus.
