    The global community must find a way to provide food security for a population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050.The Global Yield Gap and Water Productivity Atlas will provide a web-based platform that is transparent, accessible, reproducible, geospatially explicit, agronomically robust and applied in a consistent manner throughout the world. It will enable farmers, governments, policy makers, and others to: identify regions with the greatest potential to increase food supply; provide input to economic models assessing food security and land use; prioritize research investments, and evaluate the impacts of climate change and other issues concerning global food security.
