Food crisis under the spotlight

Countercurrents.org has circulated two informative pieces on the food crisis.

One is "Food Crisis Under The Spotlight" by Joyce Mulama.

Worldwide demand for food is expected to grow steadily over the next 40 years, but 25 per cent of the world's food production may be lost to 'environmental breakdowns' by 2050 unless urgent action is taken, says Mulama.

Over to "Food Crisis Under The Spotlight"

Thalif Deen, long-time Inter Press Service correspondent, writes on UN bid to usher in a green revolution.

The food crisis that spilled over from last year could take a turn for the worse in the next decade if there are no explicit answers to a rash of growing new problems, including declining agricultural production, a faltering distribution network and a deteriorating environment worldwide, says Thalif Deen.
