Food and Agriculture

A new report from the UN highlights some of the problems with sustainable agriculture, recommending an agroecology focus.

Although the focus of the report is international and from a human rights perspective, there is much food for thought for policy makers, food producers and consumers. The report identifies three objectives:
  • Adequate supply of food
  • Increase income of small farmers
  • Must not compromise the ability to meet future needs (i.e., be sustainable)

It is a fascinating report for those interested in the subject.
