Living in the UK, I find this a very difficult issue to comment on, as far as a local innitative is concerned. I have investigated this issue and have come up with this news report on Local Poverty. Take a look at this link to see the worse kind of poverty we have in cornwall.
Most of our farmers are more concerned with how much subsidy they will get for not growing any over produced crops on their land to keep the prices up.
Until this corupt and crazy systems is rectified, we will never be able to stop this travisty in Africa.
