Global production, prices, and undernourishment
Philippe Rekacewicz, Emmanuelle Bournay, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Food production more than doubled (an increase of over 160%) from 1961 to 2003. Over this period, production of cereals—the major energy component of human diets—has increased almost two and a half times, beef and sheep production increased by 40%, pork production by nearly 60%, and poultry production doubled.
