G20 Agriculture Summit Communique Suggests Action Is Missing

“The G20 agriculture ministers seem to agree: they’re all for food security, as long as it doesn’t cost anything,” according to a post on the Center for Global Development’s “Rethinking U.S. Foreign Assistance Blog.” The authors conclude: “Perhaps the heads of state meeting at a November Summit, to whom the G20 ministers’ recommendations will be submitted, will find the political will to take bolder action. Unless they do, this agriculture summit will be an example of ‘a lot of hooey, but little dooey'” (Elliott/Veillette, 6/27).
