Summary: 
If the world population reaches 9 billion by 2050, as predicted, the demand for food would increase by 60%. The situation isn't any better today - the pandemic, poverty and food insecurity have left about a tenth of the global population undernourished in 2020. Nearly 150 million children under the age of 5 were estimated to be stunted.
