Abstract

National governments as well as international organizations such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization all have an interest in agriculture. So too do numerous non-governmental organizations, pressure groups, and charities. ‘Farming futures’ first considers some of the arguments around agricultural policy. It then goes on to look at some of the most important questions that agricultural policymakers currently have to think about: what will be the impact of climate change? What is the impact of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and are they safe to use? Will we be able to meet the demand for food by the world’s growing population?
