From Oxfam via email:
Last month, Oxfam launched a new global campaign ‘GROW’, which seeks to join together with the many people around the world who have been working on transforming the way we grow and share food.
In the report released with the launch of GROW, Growing a Better Future, we outlined Oxfam’s perspective on why the world’s broken food system leaves one in seven people hungry, despite enough food being available for all. The report also outlines how rising food prices, global land grabbing, increasing scarcity of water, fuels and fertilizers, and a rapidly changing climate will further undermine access to food across the world.
It is Oxfam’s position that the food crises that international NGOs so often respond to are all entirely avoidable – the result of disastrous decisions, abused power, and perverted politics. We have launched GROW in an effort to bring together people across the globe who are concerned with food issues, and build a common consensus towards taking action to transform the world’s food system.
Oxfam invites interested parties to provide their feedback to the report, as well as your perspective and work on food issues.
