Who Really Feeds the World? The Failures of Agribusiness and the Promise of Agroecology

by Vandana Shiva
£14.99   paperback  Zed Books Ltd (2016)

Who Really Feeds the World? The Failures of Agribusiness and the Promise of Agroecology by Vandana Shiva A radical new vision for global food production, from one of the world’s most iconic environmental thinkers.
 
The world’s food supply is in the grip of a profound crisis. Humanity’s ability to feed itself is threatened by a wasteful, globalized agricultural industry, whose relentless pursuit of profit is stretching our planet’s ecosystems to breaking point. Rising food prices have fuelled instability across the world, while industrialized agriculture has contributed to a health crisis of massive proportions, with effects ranging from obesity and diabetes to cancers caused by pesticides.
 
In Who Really Feeds the World?, leading environmentalist Vandana Shiva rejects the dominant, greed-driven paradigm of industrial agriculture, arguing instead for a radical rethink of our relationship with food and with the environment. Industrial agriculture can never be truly sustainable, but it is within our power to create a food system that works for the health and well-being of the planet and all humanity, by developing ecologically friendly farming practices, nurturing biodiversity, and recognizing the invaluable role that small farmers can play in feeding a hungry world.
