Food Tank: The Food Think Tank partnering FAO

Image
Dear Naresh,

This week, Ellen Gustafson and I are incredibly excited to share that Food Tank: The Food Think Tank(FAO) will be partnering over the next two years with the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization to highlight the important role family farmers play in improving food security, alleviating poverty, enhancing ecoystem services, improving gender equity, creating opportunities for youth, and a whole range of other indicators. We're honored and thrilled to be involved in this important project and will look forward to your suggestions on groups we should highlight in Asia, Latin America, North America, ans sub-Saharan Africa.

“Family farmers” can be defined as producers who make most of their living by farming, have limited access to land and other resources, who work with family members, and where the head of the household is directly involved in production, not just management of the farm.

The World Bank reports that a one percent increase in GDP in the agric…

Naresh:
Syria is in a state of crisis. More than 70,000 people have been killed—over 3,700 are children—since the conflict started two years ago.
President Barack Obama made stopping mass atrocities a priority and a "core national security interest.” Yet U.S. efforts to slow or stop the crisis in Syria—diplomacy and sanctions against the regime, primarily—have had little effect. We need a new approach: the United States must cut off the supply chains that provide Assad the resources his regime needs to commit atrocities. This includes weapons, troops, and access to money provided by Iran and Russia, among many other actors.
Urge President Barack Obama to stop the supply chain to Syrian atrocities!
We have been tracking Assad’s supply chains since the conflict spiraled and found that the United States is well positioned to disrupt it. Secretary of State John Kerry visited Iraq recently and  told Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Mali…
