CONFERENCE “FAIR ACCESS TO LAND AND FOOD: HOW TO STOP GLOBAL LAND GRABBING”
European Parliament, Brussels
International capital, multinational enterprises, and even some governments are increasingly taking control over farmland around the world. Large amount of highly productive land is taken away from farmers, mainly in developing countries but also within the EU and Central and Eastern Europe.
The conference wishes to highlight the problem of land grabbing in the global food crisis and the human right to food, present existing alternative land management models and encourage decision makers to implement new instruments for sustainable land ownership models.
