About this book

In this book, the author lays out a vivid picture of impending planetary crisis - a global food shortage that threatens to hit by mid-century - one he argues that would dwarf any in our previous experience. His comprehensive assessment describes a dangerous confluence of shortages - of water, land, energy, technology and knowledge - combined with the increased demand created by population and economic growth. But, far from outlining a Doomsday scenario, the book is a strong and positive call to action, exploring the greatest issue of our age and providing practical suggestions for addressing and averting each of the major challenges it raises.

Media reviews
Julian Cribb warns with a well synthesized evidence base about a potential famine in the making. The food crisis is already daily reality for one billion people. The book is not just a warning but offers sound guidance for the needed actions; easily understandable but suitably comprehensive, leaving no excuse for inaction.-Joachim von Braun, Director General, International Food Policy Research Institute "The Coming Famine is an erudite and learned analysis of humanity's greatest challenge. At this very minute we are jeopardizing the rights to food for a billion people, and the effects will be felt by us all through migration, dietary changes and increased health risks, whether we believe it or not. This is a book all thinking people should read."- Lindsay Falvey, University of Cambridge
