Oxfam, a major international NGO, has released a new report called “Growing a Better Future: Food justice in a resource-constrained world.” The report is based on new research and contains many interesting facts and figures about the global food system. It describes why the current food system is failing and suggests how the world can attain a “new prosperity.” The sections on “The sustainable production challenge” and “A new agricultural future” in the full report are of particular interest for those involved in agriculture or broadcasting to farmers.
The report marks the launch of a major new four-year campaign entitled GROW. According to the Oxfam website, the campaign’s message is “Another future is possible, and we can build it together.”
