Food for the Future: Agriculture in a Sustainable CIFSRF Session 1: Sustainable agriculture 1 day ago   09:09

This video is part of the UNRISD project "Social Dimensions of Green Economy and Sustainable Development" -

Modern agriculture is dominated by high-intensity production based on the green revolution, technological fixes, and large-scale corporate control. However, to achieve food security, there must be changes not just to production, but also to trade, distribution and consumption. This video underlines the potential for "greening" agriculture and ensuring long-term food security while emphasizing the need to focus on improving the well-being of the majority of the poor and marginalized people who live and work in rural areas.

This is the fifth video in the series "Bringing the Social to Rio+20".

Footage is based on recordings and interviews from the UNRISD conference "Green Economy and Sustainable Development: Bringing back the Social Dimension" (2011).
