Next up is RAMEZ NAAM, author and futurist at Singularity University:
We have to help farmers around the world grow more food on the land they have. An acre of high-quality land in the United States may produce three or four times as much food as an acre of high-quality land in Bangladesh, for instance. A whole lot of the gains that are easily available to us are in closing that yield gap. We have to grow more food with less water.
