About This Report

Latin America, farmers “We are committed to looking for the smartest ways to make food more abundant while preserving the environment for generations to come. Through this policy paper, GHI and IBD raise several opportunities for the Latin America and Caribbean region to support global food security.  If we are going to feed a world of 9 billion people, we must work collaboratively across sectors and with partners to make sure everyone has access to nutritious, affordable food.” – Jesus Madrazo, GHI Board Chair and Vice President of Corporate Engagement at Monsanto Addressing humanity’s great challenge — finding sustainable ways to feed rapidly increasing numbers of people around the world — is Latin America’s great opportunity. Across Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), a more productive and environmentally sustainable agriculture system holds great promise for achieving food security around the world — as well as for the region’s development, for poverty alleviation and for social progress.
