Waiting the agricultural G8, Andrea Segrè


The hope is that the G8 can throw the bases for global food policy, that is in a position to promote reciprocity between rural and urban areas and a better equilibrium in the trade off between availability of resources and consumption models, economic growth and human rights.

The entry of agriculture in the political forum of the most industrialized countries denotes an increased maturity in the so-called Big governing the planet, considering that in the past some doubtful choices had relegated this primary sector to a marginal role, favouring growth models characterized by strong negative externalities like waste and pollution. Agriculture is instead showing all its modernity and its characteristics of discipline and frontier sector that can contribute to offer answers to some of the most urgent problems: food shortage, environment, climate changes, energy.

Moreover, after the recent dynamics of the agricultural prices and the growing food alimentary insecurity, the wish is that the G8 can throw the bases for global food policy, that is in a position to promote reciprocity between rural and urban areas and a better equilibrium in the trade off between availability of resources and consumption models, economic growth and human rights. Also in sight of the Milan Expo 1015 on "feeding the planet", Italy has the difficult role of mediator, to make sure that the interests of some parts do not prevail on the well-being of all and that the political appointment is not reduced to a sterile diplomatic encounter.
