In the Netherlands, no food riots have appeared and the cost of our daily bread did not significantly increase. In countries such as India and Uganda, people are on the streets because they cannot pay for their food. In ‘Levy & the world food problem’ Gideon Levy asks if we can provide every world citizen with food. In order for that to happen, world food production has to increase to meet the demands of an ever growing world population.
The question is how. By scaling up, via technological agriculture with fewer farmers or does the futures lie with the small agro-organic farmer? Levy encounters the conflict.
