Local and small-scale farming: a solution to hunger and malnutrition

Over the past fifty years, there has been significant progress in boosting agricultural production, however this has hardly reduced the number of people whose right to food remains unrealized and who suffer from hunger and malnutrition, states a recent report by the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food, Olivier De Schutter.
“The solution to hunger and malnutrition is not increased production of food combined with trade and aid, but for the international community to support the ability of each region to feed itself, and to reinvest in local production,” said De Schutter.
