Book Description:
The world agri food system is getting increasingly 'globalized'. As the majority moves into cities, and those who remain in rural areas adopt urbanized lifestyles the consumption of food is changing toward varied yet similar consumption around the world. This book reflects on how these changes are affecting the poor by looking at specific factors that are driving change. The chapters consider different angles to the following questions: How do these changes affect the roles and powers of various actors along the food chain? How relevant are these trends to the economic developments within the global agri food system, and in particular to the poor segments of society? How is the globalization of foods affecting human health? How can international and national policy address possible adverse direct and indirect effects of globalization of the world's agri food system while strengthening positive ones? The book attempts to combine both lines of inquiry, focusing more specifically on the globalization of agri food systems, the actual and potential impacts of these trends on the poor, and the implications for food and nutrition security in developing countries.
