The nations with advanced knowledge and social development shoud lead in a study of the relation between world population and food supplies. When food-grain production stands still or chronically fails to keep pace with population growth, the specters of food.

The famine pro­jections are neither a sound nor a legitimate argument for popula­tion control because the world’s existing agricultural capacity gives abundant leeway to produce adequate food supplies for the growing population.

Therefore, using famine alarm to justify sup­port of government action toward birth control can only weaken the initiative to promote recognition of the Author: Karl Brandt.

Population and Food Production Population and Food Production. Recall that English economist Thomas Malthus () proposed that the world rate of population growth was far outrunning the development of food supplies.

Malthus proposed that the human population was growing exponentially, while food production was growing : R.

Adam Dastrup, Ma, Gisp. The study assesses the food supply available to more than nations (with populations greater than 1 million) and demonstrates that food security is becoming increasingly susceptible to perturbations in demographic growth, as humanity places increasing pressure on use of limited land and water resources.

Researchers report that as the world population increases and food demand has grown, globalization of trade has made the food supply more sensitive to.

According to widely-cited estimates, world food production must double by to keep up with population growth. New research challenges this Author: Mitch Hunter. We have enough food to feed everyone sufficiently and, barring something both catastrophic and unforeseen, we will continue to have ample food supplies for the entire global population.

As noted previously, political institutions, distribution capacities, land use, pollution, GMO foods and so forth demand continuous evaluation and improvement.
