Description:
  According to the UN, the world population, currently estimated at over 7.2 billion, is expected to rise by almost 1 billion by 2025. Of this growth, India is expected to grow faster than China and surpass their current 1.4 billion citizens to become the world's largest nation. As a rapidly developing and expanding country, it is apparent that India will require sensible investments in infrastructure, healthcare, industry and services to support its inhabitants sustainably; and in a global economy, changes in India will reverberate the world over. A partnership between North Carolina State University (NCSU), USA, and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR – one of the largest agricultural development and research systems in the world) was established to undertake a crucially important research project to address global grand challenges in food production, food insecurity, renewable energy production, declining natural resources and the prevalence of disease. The project partners focused on India’s highly diverse agricultural system, its most fundamental and most important industry, to learn how it can be improved to support sustainable development.
