A 25 percent faster increase in the output of meat and milk per hectare of pasture between 2010 and 2050 could close the land gap by 20 percent and the GHG mitigation gap by 11 percent. Actions farmers can take include improving fertilization of pasture, feed quality and veterinary care; raising improved animal breeds; and employing rotational grazing. Governments can set productivity targets and support farmers with financial and technical assistance

This is how to sustainably feed 10 billion people by 2050

There is a big shortfall between the amount of food we produce today and the amount needed to feed everyone in 2050. There will be nearly 10 billion people on Earth by 2050—about 3 billion more mouths to feed than there were in 2010

There will be new infrastructure, of course, and that will be an obvious and easy metric of success. In twenty or thirty years some of the new Belt and Road projects will likely stand as the highest example of what human ingenuity can achieve in its drive to master natural forces. A bridge crossing the Caspian Sea may make road transport between Europe and China fast and easy, changing old mental maps separating continents. The Kra Isthmus Canal in Thailand will do the same for the Indian and Pacific Oceans

What you need to know to understand Belt and Road

There are two things everyone needs to know about the Belt and Road. First, as officials in Beijing will tell you, this grand project is measured in decades, with its conclusion planned for 2049, the centenary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China

The market capitalization of Europe’s largest electricity utilities declined nearly 40% from 2008 to 2013, providing a vivid example of what happens when decision-making goes astray. In this regard, the establishment of initiatives such as Climate Action 100+ and Powering Past Coal Alliance offer mechanisms for governments and investors to work together

How revealing the cost of coal makes us all better off

Knowledge is power, they say. If true, why not spy on the economics and financials of electricity generation infrastructure, given that the taxpayer and consumer are paying for it

A survey by PwC showed that business leaders around the world named cyber threats as a top concern. The Forum's Global Risks Report for 2018 also reported that large-scale cyberattacks and data breaches would be increasingly likely amid rising cyber-dependency

3 ways business leaders can build digital trust

The year 2018 has seen a steady shift in cybersecurity and privacy matters: from the back office to the front office, from the tech section to the front page, and from the IT department to the boardroom

We continue to rely on outdated methods of hiring, rooted in an earlier age. Like many business operations, we bolt on more processes rather than examining the larger system and rebuilding it to meet our current needs. We are still hiring as if work consisted of repetitive tasks when the core competency most jobs require, whatever the skill level, is critical thinking

Hiring is broken. Here’s how to fix it

Hiring has not altered much since the early days of the 20th century. Despite all of the advances in technology, it costs over £30,000 to replace a staff member and takes nearly 30 days
