The role of sustainable intensification in achieving global food security is being debated by many commentators and organisations. However this continuing dialogue is not always well informed on the economic processes that support and help define the two fundamental notions of sustainable intensification on the one hand and food security on the other. In particular the debate does not always recognise that economic growth and globalisation, the defining characteristics of 21st century economic activity, have fundamental implications for how we analyse this problem. This book will explore the implications of growth and globalisation for sustainability and food security from an economics perspective, and will explain how sustainable intensification processes can make an important contribution to solving and reconciling the puzzling and sometimes contradictory influences of growth and globalisation in the search for sustainable food security.
