COP27: A call to action for global food security and sustainability

Over the past two weeks, world leaders have convened at Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt to discuss our climate crisis and lay out the plans to protect our natural environment and our future. A critical discussion point of the conference was the importance of maintaining agricultural integrity across the world, particularly across developing countries that are susceptible to rising global temperatures.

The UN projects that the global population will increase from around 8 billion in 2022 to 10.4 billion by the end of the century. This would mean an increase of 2.4 billion mouths to feed.1 However, unless we take immediate action by adopting more sustainable practices and fast-track agricultural innovation, feeding the planet’s growing population will come at the cost of the environment, with threats of damaged soil, increased food waste and increased use of pesticides, not to mention increased deforestation, water usage and greenhouse gas emissions.

Eden Research plc (LON:EDEN) is an AIM-quoted company focussed on sustainable biopesticides and plastic-free encapsulation technology for the use in global crop protection, animal health and consumer products industries.
