A pressing issue of addressing future food security is being raised in your proposal. I quite agree with you that this issue is becoming more urgent and we need to seek efficient way of filling the food demand gaps that may be created by the increasing world population.
As we look forward to reading your full proposal, you may wish to consider the following articles:
Climate change impacts on global food security
Global food security under climate change
Global Water Resources: Vulnerability from Climate Change and Population Growth

This looks like something you can model/simulate using system dynamics-type programs. With the right set of variables for each of the three alternatives (cropland expansion, agricultural intensification and changing diet patterns) you could do a multi-dimensional cost-benefit analysis comparison along environmental, technology, social, economic and political aspects.

would be interesting tho have a complete final proposal. Evaluation of the problema seems to be cler but you have not focused on the rest of the proposal and the impact of the research you are proposing. For example, would be possible with the classification of data to adress the problem or it is needed more acurate data.

Thank you Mr. Rusll for your valuable comment. Definitely, modelling and cost-benefit analysis are potential to be used here to develop this platform.
