Sustainable Agriculture, Food Security and Resilience
There could be 9 billion people on the planet by 2050. Currently about 15 % of the global population are hungry, live in poverty, and are dangerously dependent on agriculture.

Empowering People for Inclusive Growth
Inequalities that disempower and exclude the poor persist across developing and developed countries. Youth unemployment is skyrocketing worldwide and inequality fuelled the Arab Spring. How can we best address the politically explosive combination of economic growth without jobs and social cohesion?
