Global Voices want to place an overall narrative on the global food crisis with observations from authors all over the world.
Here's the special coverage on the food crisis 2008.
When U.N. Chief Ban Ki-moon was in Austria last month he spoke of a global crisis.
BBC's science correspondent Tom Feilden looks at the reasons for the food crisis and why the era of cheap food may be coming to an end.
There's another interesting article in the Washington Post, which lists as the main reasons:
- trade restrictions on agricultural products
- increasing demand in Asia
- the push to produce biofuels
- weather influences that effected the crops
- the rising fuel prices
I like Global Voices' approach and intention of collecting facts and observations from people all over the world.
