Indian Farmer Protests - how small-scale farming can combat food insecurity


By Emily Lewis posted 24 days ago

I think it is crucial to discuss how small-scale farming can combat food insecurity through targeted policy that understands specific contexts and cultural norms. 

I wrote a piece Modi, Money, and Market Deregulation: India’s farming protests for The Perspective Webzine, a branch of UPF Lund (foreign affairs society) whilst currently on my year abroad in Sweden. It continues in The Perspective magazine, where I interviewed Shiney Varghese of the IATP 

I also made a podcast, entitled 'Feeding the 5000', on this issue of food insecurity in India. We discussed how this could be tackled, the need for more sustainable farming practices and a fundamental change in consumer and societal behaviour worldwide, particularly in the West.
