Caption: Global food imbalances. Earth map animation (cylindrical projection) showing where the world's food is grown versus where it consumed. The opening frames show the world's croplands (yellow, MODIS data), followed by the 26 countries that produce 82 percent of the world's crops. This is overlaid in red with the world's population density (2002). This fades to be replaced by cross-hatching showing countries that are projected by the United Nations to double (light hatching) and triple (dark hatching) their population by 2050. This animation, published in 2009, uses satellite data from the global agricultural monitoring program run by the International Production Assessment Division (IPAD) of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). For a version with no labels, see K003/2431.
