What an amazing organisation and mission…

Crops for the Future | Crops for the Future.

There are over 30,000 edible plant species worldwide, however, approximately 95% of the world’s food needs are provided for by just  mere 30 of them. Our heavy reliance on these handful of crops made us extremely vulnerable in the context of increasing population pressure and environmental degradation.

Crops for the Future aims to initiate a paradigm shift by looking into the potential of neglected and underutilised crops, to prepare us better in facing world malnutrition and the challenge of climate change.
