Future of Agriculture: Online Discussion blog
The Future of Agriculture is a global online policy discussion forum, intended to explore four key issues:
- farmers’ knowledge as the driver of innovation and investment;
- women’s land ownership;
- farming’s dependence on fossil fuels; and
- effective risk management systems.
Rather than critique the current state of affairs, the discussion seeks to generate bold proposals to meet increasing world demand for food in a way that eradicates hunger and preserves the environment.
The online discussion runs December 10 - December 21. Each day, we post one or two essays by leading thinkers on agriculture and food justice. We invite you to join the discussion: read the essays, post comments and share with your networks!
Oxfam has sponsored this public discussion to promote public debate and invite feedback on key development policy issues relevant to our GROW campaign. All views and recommendations expressed here are those of their authors and not necessarily those of Oxfam.
