report Conserving Land: population and sustainable food production
The third in a series of reports is now available from Population Action International's Population and Environment Program on the impact of population on the environment. The Program monitors research in this field and aims to draw attention to efforts and policies that offer promise for slowing the growth of the population now, while enhancing individual human wellbeing. This third report, Conserving Land: population and sustainable food production, looks at the prospects for increasing food production over a period of time using the world's limited land resources. It also proposes a strategy that combines conservation of agricultural resources and population stabilization. The first two reports in the series were Sustaining water: population and the future of renewable water supplies and Stabilizing the atmosphere: population, consumption, and greenhouse gasses. An update of the first report is now available. The texts for Population Action International's publications are posted on the Internet.
