Africa's first Human Development Report on food security fails to "put the last first"
As G8 leaders gather in Camp David on 18th and 19th May, one of the key issues on the agenda will be food security. Director Lawrence Haddad reflects on Africa's first Human Development Report, which focuses on food security.
While Professor Haddad is impressed with its nuanced position on agriculture, income generation and nutrition; he is disappointed to find the chapter dealing with empowerment, justice and gender equity comes last in the report.
"People, power and politics should come first, in the fight against hunger, not last" he argues.
