Juliana Xavier on responsibly feeding the world and protecting the planet
I know that climate change is on most of your minds right now, in one form or another.
The IPCC report came out, and it has got us thinking about so many aspects of life as we know it. And what needs to change in order to decrease emissions.
Today we will be talking about responsibly feeding the world and protecting the planet.
My guest is Juliana Xavier, Director of Brand Management at Yara International, a global crop nutrition company.
We cover a lot.
But, the crux of the conversation is how are we going to feed 9.8 billion people in the world by 2050?
And how will we do this in an environmentally sound way, especially if we know that growing food contributes to 20% of the greenhouse gas emissions in the world.
Keeping in mind that to produce enough food for 9.8 billion people…. will mean doubling food production from where we are today.
This is not easy.
But as Juliana says. Agriculture is part of the climate change problem. And it’s also part of the solution.
We talk about all of this.
Listen to the podcast and better understand the challenges. But also her hope.
