MISEREOR calls for more power for small farmers, less for big business

Monday, 16 October 2017 09:09

(Aachen/Asunción, 11 October 2017) With World Food Day on 16 October approaching, MISEREOR – the German Catholic Bishops’ agency for international development cooperation – is concerned about the burgeoning power of agribusiness and its negative impacts on people and the environment. “Not only is the agribusiness model unsustainable: it also does little to combat hunger in the world on a lasting basis,” says MISEREOR’s Chairman and Director General Pirmin Spiegel. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the number of chronically undernourished people in the world has risen for the first time in a decade and now stands at 815 million.
