UN: Privatizing food and agricultural aid is dangerous. Obama's Africa Plan Is Wrong

December 11, 2012 Humanosphere
The UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier de Schutter, examines the Obama Administration’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a project aimed at boosting food production in the developing world. De Schutter notes that one example of the new initiative’s approach is to have Cargill launch a large-scale project on 40,000 acres of farmland in Mozambique — which may increase crop yields but also potentially displace many poor smallholder farmers.

“The very factors that make Africa a target for agricultural development aid also make it a promising land market for multinational investors. But opportunities should not be mistaken for solutions. Problems can arise when private companies take a central role in aid programmes.”

Opportunities should not be mistaken for solutions.  "Investment" implies a financial return and often control.  "Philanthropy" and "Aid" should not be attached to profits but rather to empower and uplift populations into self independence in line with their regional ecosystems, cultural food and needs without coercion or hidden agendas by those acting as a trojan horse for big foreign business and corporate interests e.g. The Gates Foundation
