Food and Land
In much of
the world, small farmers raise food and support themselves and their families
in a way of life that has existed for centuries. In many places, large tracts of
land are held in common, used jointly by all the small farmers in the area. But
times are changing. Trade agreements, changes in government policy, and
privatization are all making subsistence farming no longer viable. Communal
lands are being lost. Poor countries are growing food for export abroad and no
longer growing food to feed their own people.
