- The purpose of this paper is to provide a high-level overview of arguments related to “feeding the future.” Briefly, this paper opens by exploring the very serious challenge of feeding the world's global population in a way that is sustainable, equitable, nutritious and economically efficient. Part two of this paper presents some of the technological innovations that are proposed as partial solutions to the global food security challenge. The final part of this paper reflects on three specific sociopolitical considerations that must be considered in order to ensure that technological innovation addresses the global food security challenge.
