Feeding the world’s growing population, which is expected to go beyond 9 billion by 2050, is one of the world’s biggest challenges. Some of the highest rates of population growth are predicted to occur in areas that are highly dependent on the agriculture sector (i.e. crops, livestock, forests and fisheries). Sustainable agricultural growth is one of the most effective means of reducing poverty and achieving food security.

If you are working or interested in international development, getting to grips with the latest ebooks on the topic can be a real challenge.  From eco-friendly farming and livestock management to progress towards food security and nutrition, here are FAO’s seven recommendations for ebooks on nutrition and food security in 2015.
