A global challenge: Feeding the future
The food producers of our planet face the extraordinary challenge of feeding 9 billion people by the year 2050. As a consequence of climate change, there will be a growing competition in using water and finding fertile land. Further, reliable weather forecasts for food producers are scarcely available in developing countries.
Science and technology can help to improve this situation by empowering the most important actors in the food production chain: farmers, fishermen and pastoralists. Providing the right information at the right time to food producers can help to improve and increase food production in a sustainable manner thus ensuring food security on a global scale.

Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated countries and poverty is deep and widespread. However, economists see it as one of the “Next Eleven” tier of developing countries with potential for foreign-investment led growth. ICCO focuses on mobilizing rural communities and engaging them in developing inclusive sustainable and profitable income generating opportunities. This is supported by lobby and policy work to demand a more effective enabling environment of the government.
