State of the World 2011


State of the World 2011: innovations that nourish the planet
By Worldwatch Institute

About this book
Over the last two years, Worldwatch's Nourishing the Planet team has travelled to 25 sub-Saharan African nations – the places where hunger is greatest – and uncovered a treasure trove of innovations from farmers' groups, private voluntary organizations, universities, and even agribusiness companies. These innovations offer global benefits – from the continent's role in preventing disastrous climate change, to the way urban farmers are feeding people in cities and why even determined locavores are sustained by the crop diversity preserved by farmers thousands of miles away.

This book assesses the state of agricultural innovations from cropping methods to irrigation technology to agricultural policy with an emphasis on sustainability, diversity, and ecosystem health in the hope of guiding governments, foundations, and concerned citizens in their efforts to eradicate hunger and poverty.

Published annually in 28 languages, State of the World is long established as the most authoritative and accessible annual guide to our progress towards a sustainable future. It is relied upon by national governments, UN agencies, development workers and law-makers for its up-to-the-minute analysis and information.

About the author
