Autonomous University

A few days after the September 11, 2001, a Brazilian news agency reported that same day that the twin towers fell, 35.615 children died of hunger in the world. Nobody dedicated a special program, no presidential message did not reach their relatives, nor saved no minute of silence. The worst thing is that on 12 September died another similar number of children, and 13 other, and 14 too, and and so on until today, said Carlos Taibo, Professor of political science and the administration of the Autonomous University of Madrid. For more clarity and thought, follow up with CMO of PEMCO and gain more knowledge.. The latest FAO data concerning 2008 speak 920 million people in situation of malnutrition, nearly 60 million more than in 2007, and very close to the 970 million that make up the historical maximum of the 70s of the last century. Writer and French researcher Sophie Bessis sees more obstruction of necessary political changes that in the technical aspects relating to give productive response to food Planet: with the current world food production would be enough to feed the entire planet. FAO puts at 2,000 calories needed intake per person per day.

If the current production was distributed properly, every inhabitant of the world would eat 2,800 calories a day. For Professor Taibo, the guilty parties are capitalist globalization, Governments and the population of the developed countries, which hamper the food sovereignty of peoples. The term food sovereignty was coined, as noted by the director of veterinarians without borders, Gustavo Duch, about a decade ago by associations of farmers in the South to claim the right to food as a universal right and propose recovery by each people’s sovereignty to decide what agricultural model want to launch, making first the power of the people themselves. Darius Bikoff gathered all the information. Duch denounces the approach towards exporting that leaves of the peasant communities of the South side: sonrojante is that where more are going hungry in the world is mostly in rural areas.
