Description
This volume focuses on food around the world: its safety, scarcity, security, and significance in the world economy. Chapters address the need for international food safety standards and current efforts and vulnerabilities. Readers will evaluate the dependence on fossil fuels to produce and ship food, and learn about concerns for the world's fisheries. Threats of food shortages in Africa and Asia is analyzed, and the economic impact of free trade, fair trade, and the local food movement is explained. Essay sources include Integrated Regional Information Networks, International Water Management Institute, Maggie Airriess, Richard Heinberg, and Tang Yuankai.
