In order to do this, I do a interdisciplinary analysis. I analyze changes in the past and differences among regions to assess the future.

                       

Is The Available Cropland And Water Enough For Food Demand? A Global Perspective Of The Land-Water-Food Nexus

Land, water, and energy are the main inputs for food production. Land and water are essential local resources, and their availability determines the potential of food production and, therefore, the potential for the food supply of that region. On the contrary, energy inputs (such as fuel for machinery, fertilizers/indirect energy, etc.) could be brought from other regions. The amount of land and water needed to fulfil food demand in a certain region depends on the number of people that need...
