Jan. 7, 2015 — Global demand for food from animal products such as meat, dairy and fish is expected to nearly double by 2050 as the world’s population continues to grow. The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) report released today addresses environmental challenges (including global climate change and limited natural resources) and the growing threat of animal diseases that could hinder efforts to meet the demand for animal agricultural products. The report also identifies factors—the need for trained workers, product safety and quality, effective communication, and dissemination of new information and technologies—that could affect the United States’ ability to meet these demands.
