Atoms for food: a global partnership

Food supply is an issue for millions of people worldwide facing soaring market prices, impacts of climate change on food harvests, and other agricultural problems. With the world population estimated to reach 9 billion by 2050, problems of food security demand significant advances in agricultural productivity and competitiveness. The IAEA and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have partnered for nearly 50 years, contributing to goals of reducing hunger and poverty by successfully helping countries use nuclear science and technology for agricultural development.
