http://agst.jgp.kyoto-u.ac.jp/topics/event/911

The global food price rising in 2007/08 triggered the so-called "land grabbing" around the world, and that impact continues still now. Almost 10 years have passed since 2008. What is happening over the issue now? We invite Devlin Kuyek of GRAIN, who has analysed and warned the phenomenon first in the world, to give a report on the following three topics: (i) the latest trend of land grabbing caused by agribusiness corporations, highlighting the issues about producing vegetable oil crops, oil palm and soy; (ii) impacts on local communities in Africa (Gabon, Tanzania, Mozambique), Latin America (Brazil), and Asia; and (iii) the involvement of and implications for Japan.
