Coming Issue of DDD

Some seasons have passed since DDD’s issue on hunger, but the debates about food and the lack of it remain unresolved. In the north the demand for fair-trade and nutritious food is on the rise whereas bio-energy causes new scarcity in the South. What innovative and alternative approaches arise? Do they offer valid solutions or cause new problems?

DDD#16 will focus on the topic of “food and farming”. We want to talk about food trends, smallholder farmers among other aspects. Who owns the land and who reaps its fruits?
