粮食主权、粮食政治与人类可持续发展

2007年10月16日“世界粮食日”那天,联合国粮农组织总干事迪乌夫说,“我们的星球有足够的粮食为所有人提供充足的食物,但今晚仍有8.54亿男人、女人和儿童饿着肚子睡觉”。本来足以满足世界食物需求的粮食,到底去了哪里? 两年过去了,尽管国际社会和各国政府都在努力,但饿着肚子睡觉的人,却伴随着日益攀升的粮价,迅速增加。约40个国家由粮食引发了社会危机和政治危机。在此背景下,需要跳出简单的气候变化、水资源短缺等客观托辞,也毋需在生物能源开发、工业化城市化占地、营养结构升级、高额农业补贴等主观因素上相互指责。需要考虑的是:为何作为最基本人权的食物权,在粮食足够的情况下,仍大面积地被践踏?
