Why Food Costs Are Climbing

The Globe and Mail's Eric Reguly says, "For the first time in decades, the specter of widespread hunger for millions looms as food prices explode. Two words not in common currency in recent years - famine and starvation - are now being raised as distinct possibilities in the poorest, food-importing countries."

Rising Food Prices Spark Deadly Unrest

According to the Agence France-Presse, "The World Bank meets here Sunday as rising food prices spark deadly unrest in developing countries, underscoring the urgency of getting food aid to desperate people." In a related story, Joseph Guyler Delva and Jim Loney of Reuters report: "Haiti's government fell on Saturday when senators fired the prime minister after more than a week of riots over food prices."

John Vidal reports for The Guardian UK, "Sixty countries backed by the World Bank and most UN bodies yesterday called for radical changes in world farming to avert increasing regional food shortages, escalating prices and growing environmental problems.... The authors of the 2,500-page International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development [IAASTD] say the world produces enough food for everyone, yet more than 800 million people go hungry."
