This week’s news item, adapted for MEC from a news article originally published in the Guardian Weekly, is about a report that expects an extra 1.5 billion people to live in Asia by 2050. The report urges Asian countries to invest in irrigation systems so they can grow enough crops to feed their fast-growing populations.
