Oxfam International released a new report predicting that food prices would double over the next twenty years, leading to more suffering among the world’s poor. For example, in India, the number of hungry people grew to 65 million people between 1990 and 2005, and high food prices will only add to the country’s food insecurity.
But there are solutions. Oxfam highlights the need for a multilateral system of food reserves, ending the policies that promote biofuels, and investing in smallholder farmers in a global climate fund, as ways to address this crisis.
