Présentation de l'éditeur

The global food system works only for the few – for most of us it is broken. It leaves the billions who consume food lacking sufficient power and knowledge about what they buy and eat, and the majority of small food producers dis-empowered and unable to fulfil their productive potential. The failure of the system flows from failures of government – failures to regulate, to correct, to protect, to resist, to invest – which mean that companies, interest groups, and elites are able to plunder resources and to redirect flows of finance, knowledge, and food.
Growing a Better Future describes a new age of growing crisis: food price spikes and oil price hikes, devastating weather events, financial meltdowns, and global contagion. It shows how the food system is at once a driver of this fragility and highly vulnerable to it, and why in the twenty-first century it leaves 925 million people hungry.
Growing a Better Future supports a new campaign with a simple message: another future is possible and we can build it together. Over the coming years, decisive action around the world could enable hundreds of millions more people to feed their families and prevent catastrophic climate change from destroying their (and our) futures.
In this new enhanced edition, Oxfam adds papers and research which develop and update the main themes of the report: land, and the growing scandal surrounding the new wave of investments (‘land grabs’); how climate change is related to food security and the East African food crisis; and how people living in poverty around the world have coped with food price crises. There are also extended case studies from Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, India, Malawi, and Nepal, and an extended and updated bibliography and resources list.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Oxfam-biased, but packed with good facts and charts. 19 octobre 2011

Facts, facts, facts. The amount of farmlands and fresh water on Earth is limited, and often solutions follow the most profitable short-term solution instead of the best long-term solution. Areas at fringes of deserts tend to be overgrazed, adding to the problem of desertification. Meanwhile, as resources dwindle, the population is increasing. Seven billion now, and nine billion in the near future.

The book has a heavy bias towards Oxfam recommendations. I don't know the anti-Oxfam point of view, but most of the facts presented are noncontroversial. There are many, many facts given, often with excellent charts and tables. Much of the file size is due to these charts.

I spent some time looking for the Anti-Oxfam point of view. Some of their recommendations on Coffee have been controversial, but that's a tiny part of this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A difficult read 30 janvier 2013

There is a lot of good information here, but it's very difficult to read. If it offered solutions for our problems, they were hard to find and not something an individual can implement. I understand we need to influence our government to make better decisions, but I was hoping for more personal solutions for my own food-growing efforts rather than a complete review of what's happening in Ethiopia. Too many statistics, too few solutions.

Although this book reads a bit like a "sales pitch" for the Oxfam point of view, I found it interesting. I would like to know the other side of the story to help me form a more informed opinion.

If you interested with climate change you should read this book too. It contains too many valuable informations for establishing a better future

Growing a Better Future does a good job of presenting the results of many different studies in a coherent and concise manner. It could be used as a jumping-off point for further research. I appreciated the many web links included to delve deeper into topics of interest. Some of the charts could have included more explanation of the impacts of the data, but overall, an excellent introduction to the looming food crisis and some practical solutions to avoid and/or alleviate its devastating effects.
