The multicultural flavors of southern california have been a big inspiration in creating these recipes as well.

Biodiversity International: Fighting poverty, hunger and malnutrition with neglected and underutilized species (NUS)

Biodiversity International: Fighting poverty, hunger and malnutrition with neglected and underutilized species (NUS) | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

"Neglected and underutilized species (NUS) are those to which little attention is paid or which are entirely ignored by agricultural researchers, plant breeders and policymakers1. Typically, NUS are not traded as commodities. They are wild or semi-domesticated varieties and non-timber forest species adapted to particular, often quite local, environments. Many of these varieties and species, along with a wealth of traditional knowledge about their cultivation and use, are being lost at an alarming rate. Yet NUS present tremendous opportunities for fighting poverty, hunger and malnutrition. And they can help make agricultural production systems more resilient to climate change."

IFAD (International Fund for Agricultural Development) video: ASAP

The Planetary Archives™ 's insight:

Unfortunatly, these are the same promises that were made 40 years ago. This sounds like another NGO whose employess recieve annual salaries that are more than these farmer will see in their ENTIRE LIVES. Maybe if "aid" money went directly to the communities in the form of  habitat preservation by not allowing corporations to despoil the planet. Rural communities NEED chipper-shredders, handtools, rainwater capture systems,  preservation of local heirloom seeds, introduction of crops like amaranth and hemp, wind powerered pumps and electricity, solar cooking and cooling systems, and iPads loaded with educational materials. I mean, seriously (thanks, kids), how many NGO's are there claiming to "fight hunger/poverty/disease/war?" By any measure, all these "plagues" are worse today than ever.

Lots of interesting GMO news lately. Here is news from Africa.

 

Excerpt:

 

“Whoever introduces GMOs [genetically modified organisms] should be responsible for what happens on the ground,” said Abdallah Mkindi, alliance coordinator.

Mkindi said scientists serve as a front for multinational seed companies. If regulations were relaxed, he said, companies could hold small-scale farmers for ransom and food security would be threatened.

“Multinational companies are simply here to expand their business,” Mkindi said. “GMO is not a solution to famine.”
