The food crisis

Jun 2008 | Comments Off on The food crisis


The soaring food price in recent months has been unprecedented.

Increased food prices could lead to increased poverty and unrest.

Even, UN call for urgent measures.

But, why this sudden spur.

Some may attribute to oil price rise, some may say due to preference to bio fuel on crop production.

Probably, the issue is more basic.

It may be a consequence of changing priorities.

Perhaps, the market driven ‘needs’ have overtaken the fundamental needs.

Despite all the ‘development and growth’ the basic issue remains.

The availability and access to food.

To most of us.
