Global Agricultural Revolutions, Trade, Policies and Vision

Author(s): MB Dastagiri

Book Description

The perceived limits to producing food for a growing global population have been a source of debate and preoccupation for ages. Both experts and the public have been vigilant when regarding the world food situation and outlook. The global agricultural vision has recently moved from eliminating hunger and poverty to a new focus on food security, nutritional security, climate change and economic opportunity. The overall approach can be classified into four strands: food for peace, food for growth, food for the planet, and food for health. This book discusses global agricultural revolutions and visions both in general and from regional, continental and national perspectives, with a particular focus on the World Trade Organization and markets. It will serve as inspiration for historians, practitioners and policy-makers in the field of global agriculture in determining a roadmap for global leaders in years to come.
