Hunger, Food Security, and the African Land Grab [Full Text]
Land and water resources are under increasing strain worldwide, resulting in rising food prices and food shortages. This essay looks at the controversial practice of foreign countries’ purchases of land for agricultural production in Africa.
How We Count Hunger Matters
Frances Moore Lappé, Jennifer Clapp, Molly Anderson, Robin Broad, Ellen Messer, Thomas Pogge, and Timothy Wise
In 2010, the FAO reported that the number of people experiencing hunger worldwide since 2005–2007 had increased by 150 million. However, in its State of Food Insecurity in the World 2012, the FAO presented new estimates, having revamped its methods and reinterpreted its hunger data back to 1990. The writers argue that FAO’s primary measure does not capture the full extent of hunger and that SOFI 12‘s overriding messages may obscure important policy lessons.
