Protein demand is surging around the world, including here in Asia. As a result, conventional meat production is projected to nearly double by 2050, leading to historic levels of natural resource depletion and climate disruption. Industrialised animal agriculture is already responsible for roughly 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions, and more than three quarters of all agricultural land is used to raise or feed livestock. In this talk, we outline how alternative proteins can satisfy this rising consumer demand in a more efficient and secure way and spotlight Singapore’s initiatives for developing a future-proof global food supply.
