With the global population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, the most impoverished regions of the world will be hit hardest with any changes to the climate. Available arable land should be used sensibly and sustainably to address the world's food needs. An improved understanding of where our food is grown, and where it ends up, could influence decision making related to food needs.

This project is solving the Food Directions challenge.


Our app aims to improve global datasets by making uploading crop data easy and even fun! Crowdsourced information about the quantities of crops imported and exported will complement official datasets and allow for better food resource management in the future.

Learn See how production compares to consumption of foods by country. Discover which countries produce more food overall, or dig deeper and find out who exports cash crops but imports staples.

Measure Measure the impact of natural disasters on international food production and trade. See which regions are most vulnerable to future crises.

Contribute Join a growing community of contributors from the agriculture sector to provide clearer, more accurate and more comprehensive data on global food resources.
