1. In the second of a six part series investigating the growing gap between food production and global population growth, DJ Clark crosses the Chinese border into the western hills of Nepal to investigate the age-old problem of food shortages in vulnerable rural communities. Although the looming food crisis is set to worsen over the next 40 years, Clark discovers in Dolpa, Nepal that it is already starting to impact on some Asian communities.

  2. Mohammed Mohasin lives with his family in a small rented home in a slum on the outskirts of Dhaka, Bangladesh. He is one of an increasing crowd of rural migrants moving into cities across Asia as the 21st Century gears up to be the century of cities. Although Mohammed has found a steady job, his life is far from secure as he spends the majority of his income on food and rent. Any small increases in food price means that Mohammed has to reduce what he eats. In the third part of this series, D J Clark discusses increasing food insecurity in cities where access to food rather than the lack of food is a rising .

  3. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation predict that the demand for meat will double before 2050 as global urban middle classes rise. Yet meat production uses eight times the resources to produce the same calorie value as cereal crops. In the preceding parts of this series Clark has made the case that Asian populations are rising faster than food production and that if nothing is done we are on course for a future food crisis. In this part Clark investigates the role of markets and governments in managing access to food.

  4. Biotechnology crops, the engineering of seed variations by cross breeding and genetically modifying (GM) native seeds, not only provides possibilities to increase yields but also to create more resilient seeds to pests and climate variations. But the practice is controversial as it involves introducing engineered crops into our food chain and potentially upsetting nature’s balance. This video, the fifth in a series on the looming food crisis in Asia, looks at biotechnology as one of many different solutions to increase crop yields.

  5. About three years ago Tom Huang found himself in increasing pain from a bad stomach and went to the hospital for a diagnosis. The doctors told him it was the food he was eating that caused the problem and he needed to change to a healthier diet. Tom could not afford the expensive organic food offered in the Beijing supermarkets so he joined the increasing army of urban farmers tending small plots of land on the outskirts of the city. The first five parts of this series made the case that populations across Asia are increasing at a faster rate than food production and that unless something is done the continent will face a food crisis. In the last part D J Clark returns to Beijing to investigate the development of urban farming as a means to mitigate increasing global food prices.
