Global corporations are positioning to push global implementation of the Codex Alimentarius: International Food Standards, and global corporate control of our world's food supply, but a few lone voices offer an alternative strategy. The alternative is the polar opposite of the corporate solution.

Yet another UN report calls for support for peasant farming and agroecology: it's time for action

La Vía Campesina, GRAIN and ETC welcome a new UNCTAD report which states that farming in rich and poor nations alike should shift from monoculture towards greater varieties of crops, reduced use of fertilizers and other inputs, greater support for small-scale farmers, and more locally focused production and consumption of food.

UNCTAD's 2013 Trade and Environment Report ("Wake up before it is too late: make agriculture truly sustainable now for food security in a changing climate") states that monoculture and industrial farming methods are not providing sufficient affordable food where it is needed, while causing mounting and unsustainable environmental damage.

Aquaponics and vertical gardening. You can make this stuff fairly cheap and easy. It would increase efficiency with resources by at least an order of magnitude. If I had a billion dollars to play with, there would be no agricultural issue for the near future.
