Oxfam’s report “Growing a Better Future” calls on governments, companies and individuals to rethink how food is produced, consumed and shared. This new report is the result three years of research and provides background for Oxfam’s GROW campaign.
From Oxfam’s experience in programs in over 80 countries, it was clear that eating had become ever more of a challenge for millions of people. Climate change was making it more difficult for farmers to know when or what to plant. And in 2008, soaring food prices drove the number of hungry people to over one billion for the first time.
“Growing a Better Future” clearly outlines how the food system is broken. But it also calls for solutions. The food system can and must be transformed.
