La crisi strutturale del sistema alimentare

Come nel caso di altre risorse fondamentali quali acqua ed energia, anche il problema della denutrizione e malnutrizione globale non è dovuto ad un’effettiva scarsità di risorse alimentari, ma ad una loro iniqua distribuzione e ad un degrado della loro qualità. Oggi si produce più cibo pro-capite al mondo di quanto sia mai stato prodotto in passato eppure una persona su sette soffre la fame. Accanto al miliardo di persone che soffrono di inedia[1], un miliardo soffre di malattie connesse al soprappeso, quali diabete e disturbi cardio-circolatori. L’impennata dei prezzi dei beni agricoli di sussistenza avvenuta nel 2008 e la crisi economico-finanziaria che stiamo attraversando hanno determinato un ulteriore inasprimento del problema. Oggi, i tre quarti della popolazione mondiale rischiano la fame non a causa della carestia ma del carovita. La crisi alimentare è strutturale e non congiunturale.

In un recente rapporto della International assessment of agriculture science and technology for development (IAASTD 2008) promosso dalla Banca Mondiale e dalle Nazioni Unite e prodotto da più di quattrocento scienziati, si legge:

I governi e le parti in causa devono ripensare il sistema alimentare attuale, che non è sostenibile né a livello sociale né a livello ambientale. Il sistema attuale ha portato alla diffusione della fame, della malnutrizione e dell’obesità. Sta depauperando le risorse naturali e accelerando il cambiamento climatico. Abbiamo il dovere di rivedere le nostre scelte passate.

Prima di entrare nel merito delle nuove vie da seguire, riflettiamo su alcune delle “scelte passate” da rivedere, ovvero su alcuni dei fattori che determinano la crisi strutturale.

PETER CHIARELLI, U.S. ARMY (RET.): Well, I would argue that we’re in a much better position today than we were in 1998 with the creation of AFRICOM. It provides focus into Africa; relationships have been built. Intelligence has been gathered and will continue to be gathered to fill in any holes that we have about what happened in this particular attack and what could happen in the future.

This includes about 440,000 acres of sugar cane fields. The South Florida Water Management’s main job should be to manage these resources for the public benefit. But instead they see their job differently. Their priority is to ensure that the water levels in the sugar cane fields are maintained at 1824 inches below ground for the benefit of the sugar cane fields. This water level insures for optimum production of sugar cane.”

    Have you got any experience? cheap clomid 50mg Not all of the fallen choose such a public rehabilitation. Consider Jack Grubman, the former telecommunications analyst at Salomon Smith Barney, who now runs The MacGee Group, a consulting firm. Grubman was banned from the securities industry eight years ago, after the Securities and Exchange Commission found that he has issued research reports that misled investors. His reputation was severely damaged as well when it was found that he upgraded AT&T, a company on which he had been publicly negative, and that soon afterward Salomon benefited in fees from an offering of shares in its subsidiary. In addition, he bragged in an e-mail that, in return for the upgrade, Sanford Weil, then Chairman of Citigroup, helped get Mr. Grubman’s daughters into school at the 92nd Street Y. Grubman has received next to no publicity since and did not return a call seeking comment.
