Land Grabs and the Manufacturing of Poverty

Posted on

In this hangout we discuss some of the adverse effects of FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) when this is aimed at economic growth and disregards the well being of people. One of these phenomena is Land Grabbing, which disempowers the local population. With food security reaching an all time low and Food production an all time high – how is hunger manufactured and what are the solutions we can implement towards human oriented development? We’ll be discussing Land Grabbing around the world with Eleonora Gozzini.
