In all important cases of food insecurity, solution strategies based on a single disciplinary perspective, or a silver bullet mentality, are bound to fail. For policymakers, business leaders, and farmers, who must take responsibility for the decisions they make, the information they use does not come in tidy packages. That is why multiple perspectives that are well grounded in strong analytic foundations are needed to combat the serious food and agricultural challenges of the upcoming decades. This chapter uses lessons from the earlier chapters to highlight some key principles for feeding a world of up to 10 billion people in the twenty-first century. The chapter also emphasizes the critical questions that need to be addressed as food is placed on the global table: At what price? With what levels of nutrition? With what impact on ecosystems? And with how much enduring inequality and chronic hunger?
