The risk of food supply disruptions will continue to grow as our agricultural systems and the land that sustains us continue to respond to the pressures of climate change, energy needs and population increases. Understanding and monitoring global agriculture production is essential to combat both short-term and long-term threats to stable and reliable access to food for all. Strategic investments over the next 10 years in earth observations, involving satellite observations, in-situ (ground-based) measurements and survey could revolutionize global agricultural production monitoring, leading to improved management of our agricultural resources, helping to reduce malnutrition and contribute towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.

Abstract

The risk of food supply disruptions will continue to grow as our agricultural systems and the land that sustains us continue to respond to the pressures of climate change, energy needs and population increases. Understanding and monitoring global agriculture production is essential to combat both short-term and long-term threats to stable and reliable access to food for all. Strategic investments over the next 10 years in earth observations, involving satellite observations, in-situ (ground-based) measurements and survey could revolutionize global agricultural production monitoring, leading to improved management of our agricultural resources, helping to reduce malnutrition and contribute towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
