Can we produce enough food to allow 10-11bn people to live as we do, and in a sustainable way? The answer to this is partly determined by what is meant by “sustainable”. I’ll examine different notions of sustainability – from an agricultural and agri-food systems perspective – and ask whether they are sufficient to ensure that we maintain planetary and local ecosystem functioning; or whether intervening on the demand side is a necessary precursor to maintaining the system within “safe operating spaces”.
