Whose Alliance? The G8 and the Emergence of a Global Corporate Regime for Agriculture

EAA and its member CIDSE, an international alliance of Catholic development agencies, are deeply concerned about the vision and approach of the G8 New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition in Africa which enshrines food security in a market orientation, rather than as a human right. We believe the initiative falls short of what is needed to eradicate hunger and could potentially undermine progress towards that end. This briefing outlines what we consider to be some of the major problems and risks with the New Alliance, as well as key recommendations. The analysis and recommendations are structured around three central themes: 1) Coherence, 2) Vision, and 3) Process.

Nourishing the World Sustainably: Scaling up Agroecology

This briefing paper documents the success of sustainable agricultural practices that support small-scale farmers and local communities and which also benefit the environment and natural resource base.
It establishes the case for more investment in this alternative path rather than expanding the industrial “green revolution” style of agriculture. While industrial agriculture has certainly increased food production in recent decades, it has also “destabilized the natural resource base and drives much of the loss of biodiversity” as well as contributing - directly and indirectly - to the 30% of total global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) currently generated by the agricultural sector.

DVD on Religious Leadership

A high level summit held in the Netherlands in March 2010 brought religious leaders from many faiths and around the globe together with people living with HIV and leaders and representatives of organizations active in the response. The aim was to maximize the growing leadership potential of key religious figures particularly in addressing stigma and discrimination.
 
Their words and testimonies shared in this DVD through speeches and interviews are moving, challenging, inspiring. These words led the religious leaders at the Summit to sign a personal commitment to action, resolving that “together, we must do more.”

IAASTD Fact Sheet

The International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) report is the result of a four-year consultative process involving international development agencies, governments, civil society, policy makers, scientists and the private sector. The report clearly shows that current commercial agricultural practices are endangering the planet while also failing to substantially reduce the number of people living in hunger. Its proposals to reverse this trend recognize the importance of environmental protection, smallscale food producers and traditional knowledge, and trade practices that protect local food production. Despite the broad process and its far-reaching findings, governments have given the report little attention. It is up to civil society to promote its findings and push governments to implement its proposals. This fact sheet summarizes the process and findings of the report, and what needs to be done to ensure food security for all.

In this challenging book, 35 theologians and practitioners, from different traditions and continents, engage in a conversation with one another, with their hurches, with UN agencies, and with organizations of people living with HIV or AIDS.
