L’accaparramento dei deserti del cibo

Land grabs—large-scale acquisitions of agricultural, range and forest lands by outside interests—are happening around the world. According to the World Bank, from the onset of the global food and financial crises, large land deals have affected an agricultural area twice the size of France, with most acquisitions coming from China, the US and Great Britain. Most land grabs are for agrofuels production in the Global South, with over 2/3 of land grabs occurring on the African continent. However, another form of land grabbing is taking place in the Global North—across the food deserts of the US.
