Accounting for a fifth of the world's food, wheat is the main source of protein in developing countries and is second only to rice as a source of calories in those consumers diets.
Wheat is a critical source of life for 1.2 billion "wheat dependent" and 2.5 billion "wheat consuming" poor.
Climate-change-induced temperature increases are likely to reduce wheat production in developing countries by 20-30 percent.
By 2050, demand for wheat in the developing world is projected to increase by 60 percent.
