WAYS TO THINK ABOUT HOW CSU IS

Nourishing our Planet in the Face
of Projected Population Growth

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ECONOMIC
QUESTIONS FOR FEEDING THE PLANET?

Structuring incentives and regulations so that innovative ideas
are translated into practice in U.S. and global agriculture

DROUGHT
a major constraint
to global agriculture

Approx. 15% of annual crop losses
are due to drought leading to a

health and food security

Est. Land Degradation

Costs Worldwide:

$40 billion/year

reduction in ecosystem services

Of all agricultural land

52 PERCENT
is moderately or severely
affected by soil degradation

Addresses microbial hazards that can
accompany intensive agriculture production,
such as antimicrobial resistance, pathogenic
microorganisms, and disruptions of the normal
microbial ecosystem, all of which can injure
ecosystem health and cause food safety issues

We cannot achieve global food
security without reaping the benefits of
modern intensive agriculture systems,
such as increased yields, increased
production efficiency, and economy
of scale, but we must also
manage hazards that can be
associated with intensive
production practices

TOTAL ECONOMIC LOSS

The total statewide

economic cost of
the 2014 drought
in California is

$2.2 billion

With a total loss of 17,100

seasonal and part-time jobs

costs of increased fertilizer
use, biodiversity loss, and

Globally, 44% of the total
crop and livestock production
losses are caused by drought
