Sowing Hunger, Reaping Profits — A Food Crisis by Design


The root cause underlying the food crisis has nothing to do with lack of supply or lack of market integration — the problem lies with how the food system is structured around power, according to a new report by Navdanya International.

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, headlines have been dominated by the warnings of risk to the global food supply shortages and rising global food prices, all due to the conflict.
But, according to many international groups, there is currently no risk of global food supply shortages.
So why are so many countries now facing an increased risk of food insecurity, and in worst cases famine?
What is crucially being overlooked by most diagnoses of the current food crisis is how the problem does not lie in a lack of supply, or lack of market integration, but instead in how the food system is structured around power.
Detailed in this new report by Navdanya International, is how, in fact, we have already been facing a food and malnutrition crisis long before the current conflict.
From the colonial era, which saw the beginning of extraction and exploitation of small farmers, to the advent of the Green Revolution and the concretizing of the globalized free trade regime, we have seen the deliberate destruction of small farmers and food sovereignty in favor of corporate power.
Therefore, it is no coincidence that today we are witnessing the third major food crisis in the last 15 years.
What the Russian-Ukrainian conflict has once again laid bare is just how fragile globalized food systems are. The current globalized, industrial agrifood system is a food system that creates hunger by design.
Worst of all, international institutions, governments and corporate actors are using the current crisis, as they have used every crisis: to further consolidate this failed model. False solutions and redundant calls for failed approaches abound in headlines and international responses.
The current crisis should be a wake-up call to the imperative of building resilience in food systems through agroecology, local food chains and strengthening small farmers.
Now more than ever will a food systems transformation toward Food Sovereignty, based on agroecology and increasing biodiversity, help act as a lasting solution to hunger.
All over the world, many are following the path of poison-free food and farming, and are transitioning to an ecological and democratic path, putting the food system in the hands of communities, women, farmers and consumers.
Only through local, agroecological food systems will systemic dependence on fertilizers, commodity farming, import dependencies and systematic poverty be challenged.
This is the most powerful means to regain our agriculture, our territories, our food, our natural environment and our future.
