Quick scan ‘Locations for highest-potential greenhouse development in the world’

Forecast studies show an increasing demand for greenhouses worldwide, as governments encourage local, safe and sustainable food production. Climate change, scarcity of water and other key resources are adding to the trend towards greenhouses.

This paper shows a world map of the highest suitability for greenhouses, broken down by mid-tech and high-tech greenhouses. This is done by performing a quick scan, which means synthesis and application of existing knowledge and data. Of the countries with the highest potential, more detailed maps are shown.
