The Politics Of Hunge: When Policies and Markets Fail the Poor


Small-scale farmers who produce much of the world’s staple food (rice, wheat and corn) are now experiencing loss of livelihoods, lands and resources due to policies and markets that fail the poor. The world is experiencing a mounting global food crisis which is fueling food riots from Haiti, Mexico, and Cameroon to the Philippines, Indonesia and Bangladesh. Ironically, this is happening in a world that produces enough food for all people. Published by PAN Asia Pacific, this handbook hopes to provide a comprehensive analysis of the global food crisis.
