Food crisis - It never went away

Jeffrey Sachs starting the SIPA Columbia talk pretty drastically and to the point, listing challenges and actions. If you don't have the time for the whole discussion, don't miss the first 15 minutes of Jeffrey Sachs. John Holmes follows by detailing the UN taskforce, Thoraya Ahmed Obaid emphasising the importance to target women as a very important part of the solution and Ajaykumar Manubhai Vashee about the challenges of the local agriculture, the small farmers.
The School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) of Columbia University is hosting regularly panel discussions that you can watch on the web or via iTunes.
