“Food security is my biggest worry about climate change. Many of our current crop varieties could see a decline in yields as the planet continues to warm. In some regions, this could be severe. Now, we’re not helpless in this situation: we can prevent at least some of these losses with different crop varieties, irrigation, farming inputs, and technological innovation.

We’re therefore in a race: can innovation and agricultural productivity keep pace with a changing climate?

So far, the answer has been yes.”
