.@Cold_Peace_: What stands out for #Indiaat75 is that it is a stabilising actor. It is fairly remarkable that #India has risen quickly. In stark contrast to China's position, India is treating other countries with respect and has been a friend of the #West.

.@Cold_Peace_: It is very important to distinguish between criticism in #freepress and government policies. The #US government policies have been consistent in the last two decades. All countries want to do more business with #India.

"Even with the government subsidies, people in #Egypt, #Tunisia, #Syria, #Algeria and #Morocco spend between 35 and 55 per cent of their income on #food. They’re living on the edge: small price rises bring #poverty and #hunger."

"Just before the pandemic, in 2019, American non-financial corporations made about a trillion dollars a year in profit, give or take. This amount had remained constant since 2012. But in 2021, these same firms made about $1.73 trillion a year. ...
... That means that for every American man, woman and child in the US, corporate America used to make about $3,081, but today makes about $5,207. That’s an increase of $2,126 per person. ...

#SupremeCourt is hearing a plea filed by social activists Anun Dhawan, Ishann Dhawan and Kunjana Singh, seeking subsidised canteens in all states and UTs to ensure food security in the wake of the havoc wreaked by the pandemic #hunger
CJI: We had noted last time that state govt has to take responsibility to put up kitchens etc and until then centre cant do anything. we had asked for a meeting to be convened so that a comprehensive scheme can be drawn up and areas like jharkhand, bihar can be identified
CJI: So far the finances are concerned you can decided what finance state and centre will give and how much foodgrains centre. this is it and i am not going to law or other details. A common scheme has to be evolved.

💡 How the resetting of corporate control of food systems is already well under way 👇🏾


🧵 A thread on #foodsystems & the #UNFSS /1
Few people will dispute that global food systems need transformation, but this #UNFSS is instead an effort by a powerful alliance of multinational corporations, philanthropies, and export-oriented countries to subvert multilateral institutions of food #governance.

Once Guterres appointed a Special Envoy and the structure of the Summit was announced, the drivers behind the Summit became clear.

(1/6) 931 Millionen Tonnen #Lebensmittel landeten 2019 weltweit laut des neuen UN-Berichts zu #Lebensmittelverschwendung in der #Mülltonne. Damit werden 17 % der global produzierten Lebensmittel nicht konsumiert. Der größte Teil wird durch #privateHaushalte verschwendet (61 %). Image
(2/6) Zugleich leiden Millionen von Menschen täglich #Hunger. Es wird geschätzt, dass 8-10 % der globalen #Treibhausgasemissionen durch #Lebensmittel entstehen, die gar nicht konsumiert werden. Eines der UN-Ziele ist es, die #ProKopfVerschwendung bis 2030 zu halbieren.
(3/6) Die positiven Effekte wären vielfältig sowohl für #Mensch als auch #Umwelt: eine verbesserte #Lebensmittelsicherheit, weniger #Treibhausgasemissionen, Entlastung von #Land, #Wasser und Abfallmanagementsystemen, besserer Schutz der #Biodiversität und monetäre Einsparungen.

What can we learn from the 'global land rush' about the risks of large-scale land-based carbon removal in climate mitigation strategies?

A 🧵to put the numbers - like #Shell's reference to needing a new 700Mha forest - into some context
700Mha sounds a lot, & it is.

From 2000-2016 - during the 'global land rush' - @Land_Matrix documented contracted large-scale land deals covering c. 25Mha

That period tells us a lot about the risks of large-scale reliance on land for carbon removals
It was driven by financial #speculation, #biofuels policies and weak land tenure #rights, & has been associated with widespread dispossession, increasing land #inequality & #hunger

No surprise biofuels crops - palm oil, jatropha, sugar cane - accounted for the biggest land area

📽️@UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to #Food, @MichaelFakhri, delivers a special video message ahead of our #CFS47 side event tomorrow:

💡 Global Response to #COVID19 #Hunger Crisis: Developing Effective Policy Responses through the @UN_CFS [🧵thread]

"COVID19 has not only been a public health crisis, but it has also generated a hunger crisis. The virus is new, but it has been predictably harshest on marginalised people. In fact, the world was falling behind on realising the right to food even before the current pandemic." /2
"Even with new vaccines, it will be some time before the global #health situation stabilises & it will be at least a decade before the world recovers economically. Meanwhile, Member States and international orgs have not yet come together to tackle the looming hunger crisis." /3

This hunger index has little or nothing to do with hunger. Read blogs at… to find out why:
2/hung When I last researched it >10 yrs ago, hunger was <2% of popukstion, poverty was 25-30% of pop & "child malnutrition", caused by dirty water & open sewers, was 35-40%. Hunger index mixes such things together to produce a meaningless index which has little to do with hunger
3hung (*population ): Leftist (intellectual elite)member of Planning commission, vetoed my internal talk on #poverty #elimination, forced removal of tables+analysis of #Hunger in Plan chapter, and subsequently forced the #NSSO to remove questions on #hunger from new surveys🙈🙉🙊

We are calling for a $500m national #EdibleGardening fund as a necessary and urgent investment in public and community #health to be co-financed by Federal, State and Territory governments.

We’re in a national emergency, and we must respond accordingly. #urbanagriculture
Dietary-related ill-health and mental illness cost Australia around $200 bn every year.

With COVID-19 and the climate emergency, these costs will rise and more will experience #hunger and #foodinsecurity. In a country as wealthy as #Australia, there is no excuse for this.
The levels of food poverty and dietary-related ill-health amongst #FirstNations communities are a matter of national shame.

Edible gardening has immense power to do good, as our national #PandemicGardening survey showed.

"In the name of economic growth, we've sacrificed #ecosystems, and we've exhausted the women and men in the economy, by subjecting them to huge pressure from the #globalisation of competition and the deregulation of labour markets." - IPES-Food's Olivier De Schutter @DeSchutterO
"We must think of a different kind of #development: one that does not see economic growth as a precondition for everything else," IPES-Food co-chair @DeSchutterO tells @thinink.
Olivier De Schutter, also @UN Special Rapporteur on extreme #poverty and human rights:

"After some (minor) progress, with absolute numbers of people suffering from #hunger going down from 925 million in the early 1990s to 820 million in 2018, the numbers are going up again."

Since some have asked, here’s a THREAD highlighting the #housing/#homelessness coverage that earned @PressNH’s Dennis Joos Memorial Award.

I’ve pubbed 200+ stories since 2017, so this will be a sampling, including ones from the contest period.

This 15-part, multimedia-heavy series from @smgphoto and I kickstarted our coverage and many things.

A few weeks later, as dialogue was building, a historic 14-day cold snap hit, endangering countless folks. The Seacoast’s 1st-ever emergency walk-in shelter was opened. @smgphoto and I reported there nearly every day. Here’s the Jan. 2018 day it ended.…

"Ppl who use food assistance...say they experience stigma, shame and hopelessness...seeking food traumatic, stressful and detrimental to one's health & wellbeing' - @ChristinaPolla8 @DrSueBooth "Food Insecurity & Hunger in Rich Countries' -…
'The Australian government is failing to fulfil its legal and moral obligation to guarantee the #humanright to #adequatefood for at least 1.2 mn people'. In a country that boasts about being #foodsecure & 'feeding 60 mn people', this is an indictment
The human right to adequate food is universal - everyone has it, regardless of who they are or how much money they have - and it is inalienable - it can't be forfeited or surrendered. Poverty is no reason for a person or group not to have access to adequate food at all times
