10. Set up an Institute for Food Innovation

Vertical farming will likely be needed by the second half of the century. By 2050, the world is estimated to need to feed over 9 billion people, with 70% of people living in urban areas. At some point we will reach a tipping point where the arable land available is insufficient for the growing population. Given the potential of building upwards, the yield could be much higher than with regular soil-based farming. Setting up an Institute for Food Innovation, with early-stage funding allocated, would help get new industries and technologies off the ground.
