In a policy briefing by Gordon Conway based on his book, “One Billion Hungry: Can We Feed The World?” Conway addresses the broad goal of helping the one billion people who face food insecurity today. He outlines the most critical areas of policy change needed to increase food production, stabilize the environment and reduce poverty. He identifies the following as comprehensive solutions: technological and methodological innovation, opening up world markets to smallholder farmers with an emphasis on maximizing farmer benefits, and identifying and empowering at-risk populations (women, young people, ethnic minorities and the landless). Finally, Conway emphasizes the need to create a political environment that enables coordinated and committed policies to promote agriculture, increase access to farm inputs, outputs, credit and marketing services, investments in rural development and prioritizing the empowerment of at-risk populations.
