Food production systems at risk

Food-producing environments across Europe, Asia and the Americas are under increasing pressure from competing uses. From the agricultural heartlands of central USA, western and Mediterranean Europe, Asia and Africa, nowhere is immune from soil degradation and falling water tables.

The data has been collated and presented by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, the FAO. It can all be found in the FAO’s The State of the World’s Land and Water Resources for Food and Agriculture (SOLAW) report.
