Urban agriculture can help, but not solve, city food security problems

"..."Urban agriculture is attractive because it uses land or rooftops not currently used for food production and could increase habitat and biodiversity, enhance stormwater management, and provide fruits and vegetables, resulting in positive nutritional outcomes," Costello said. "However, fruits and vegetables do not contain sufficient calories, protein or other critical nutrients, such as vitamin B12, to support the full range of human needs. "..."

Sustainable cropping systems for the future

"...The land use requirements of agriculture are enormous, and it is crucial for researchers and policymakers to understand how they are affected by external factors and interact with other land uses. Mora and colleagues generated a set of scenarios of how future agricultural land use may be impacted by climate change and a range of socioeconomic factors [13]. These hypothetical scenarios can be used as tools in planning how best to adapt agriculture and food systems to future realities..."

Starved, stuffed and squandered: Consequences of decades of global nutrition transition

"...Crop and grazing land for food production cover about one third of the global land area; our food system is responsible for up to a third of global greenhouse gas emissions. The study projects that - if current trends continue - global food demand will increase by about 50% between 2010 and 2050, the demand for animal products like meat and milk will approximately double, a development that requires more and more land..."

Farms, tables and vast impacts between and beyond

"...Scientists at Michigan State University (MSU) and colleagues have used new sustainability science tools to understand how the increasingly irrigating farm fields to grow food reverberates through the biggest drivers of sustainability. Further, they show It's not just the farmlands that shoulder environmental impacts. Effects are felt faraway as massive water redirects gobble energy and spew emissions..."

Keeping our cool

"...Acording to UC Santa Barbara ecology professor David Tilman, petroleum energy sources are only part of the picture. In a paper published in the journal Science, Tilman and colleagues predict that even in the absence of fossil fuels, cumulative greenhouse gas emissions could still cause global temperatures to exceed climate change targets in just a few decades..."

Phosphorus deficit may disrupt regional food supply chains

"...Phosphorus is essential in agriculture to maintain higher production levels, where it is applied as a fertilizer. Some of the world regions are experiencing high population growth rates, which means more phosphorus will be needed to produce an increasing amount of food needed in the next decades. A new study - Global phosphorus supply chain dynamics: Assessing regional impact to 2050 - published in the scientific journal Global Food Security, that was undertaken at Stockholm University, Sweden, University of Iceland, Iceland, and the Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden, shows that the world regions with high population growth rates are also the regions with the highest deficit in phosphorus supply..."

Fostering a sustainable use of phosphorus

"...The authors tried to give some suggestions to increase the resilience of the P cycling network while guaranteeing food security. The first suggestion is to reduce food loss and food waste. The second one, to improve the 'farm to fork efficiency' (that is, P productivity) in food supply chains..."
