The world is facing a serious food crisis, according to IUCN's Scientific Advisor Jeff Sayer. He speaks to Wild Talk about the need to find a balance in agriculture between producing enough crops to feed the world, but at the same time conserving the natural infrastructure on which we all depend. He explains how some eminent scientists believe that the world population will not reach its projected nine billion by 2050 - but adds most people refuse to contemplate this scenario.
