Note: This is excerpted from the Community Connected publication.
The UN (2018) notes that “Today, 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 68% by 2050.” As people continue to be displaced from rural areas with increasing wildfires, rising tides, and other destabilizing climate events, we will likely see numbers rise even higher. With this in mind, we must have a systemic approach to how we will feed ourselves over the next 100 years and more with these figures and demographic migration trends in mind.
