Food prices have hit an all time high in more than a year. In places like India, people are cutting back, particularly on quality foods like fruits and vegetables. Which is truly devastating as they are critical foods for good nutrition. Let’s hope the riots don’t escalate like those they are seeing in Algeria and Tunisia.
The World Watch Institute says that “Innovations in sustainable agriculture—such as the cultivation of indigenous crops, affordable irrigation techniques that conserve water resources, and improved storage to reduce food waste—can go a long way to improve local food security worldwide.”
I agree with this in theory but I don’t think it will solve all the issues for everyone.
