Title The New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. A coup for corporate capital?
Contributor Terra Nuova, TNI
Content This report explores the ways in which global corporations are influencing development agendas in Africa, and the faulty rhetoric that underpins their vision of development. Small farmers produce 80% of the food consumed in Africa today, and farmers’ own investments make up 90% of all investment in agriculture globally.
Yet, when it comes to the design of large-scale aid and development programs, corporate capital is increasingly in the driver’s seat, shaping policies that support international investors while endangering and impoverishing small-scale farmers.
