Descripci贸

We have entered a new phase of the global food crisis. Wealthy countries that import much of their food, along with private investors, are racing to buy or lease huge swaths of farmland abroad. "The Global Farms Race" is the first book to examine this burgeoning trend in all its complexity, considering the implications for investors, host countries, and the world as a whole. The debate over large-scale land acquisition is typically polarised, with critics lambasting it as a form of "neocolonialism," and proponents lauding it as a cure-all for global agriculture. "The Global Farms Race" instead offers diverse perspectives, featuring contributions from agricultural investment consultants, farmers' organisations, international NGOs, and academics. This critical resource addresses historical context, environmental impacts, and social effects, and covers all the major geographic areas of investment.
