MSU Helps Feed The World

Posted:

Michigan State University is leading an effort to help develop sustainable ways of feeding people in large metropolitan areas around the world.

The East Lansing school says representatives from the U.S., India, Kenya, South Africa, the Netherlands and Singapore met this week in Detroit. They agreed to launch an effort called The Global Innoversity. Officials from Detroit also are participating in the effort.

Participants want to promote local economic development, land recovery and food security. An aim is to ensure metropolitan regions can meet the food demands of populations projected in 2050. FoodPlus Detroit was created in June as part of the effort.

Faculty from Michigan State University's colleges including Agriculture and Natural Resources are involved, as well as MSU AgBioResearch and MSU Extension.
