"We need to produce 70 per cent more food, 50 per cent more water and 30 to 40 per energy by the year 2050," he said.
"But, the agricultural productivity will slow to 1.7 per cent. We need USD 84 billion in investment to meet the growing needs," he stressed.
Dr Prem said not only the world population growing by leaps and bounds but the longevity of the people is increasing, so we need to feed more people and that means we need to produce more food.
