A new study proposes farming reform is necessary to aid developing nations.
Olso (WiredPRNews.com) – A new study suggests farming reform is essential for combating threats to developing countries such as widespread hunger and global warming. As reported by Reuters, the international report states research and radical reform were necessary for confronting the threats without increasing rates of obesity.
Jules Pretty, a professor of Environment & Society at Essex University in England, and one of the study’s authors, is quoted in the report as stating of the issue, “There have been great advances in agricultural development in the past 50 years with remarkable increases in productivity… But there are still a billion people hungry and a lot of the progress has been made at the expense of the environment. Just around the corner are a number of serious threats which may already be playing out — climate change, an energy crunch, economic uncertainty in the current model and rapidly changing consumption patterns.”
The study will reportedly be presented in France at a farm experts meeting March 28-31.
