Our Green Week: Food systems in crisis – Overcoming neo-colonial dependencies

Towards a more critical and inclusive debate on the structural causes of global hunger

What is the real impact of the current food crisis on countries in the global South? What is needed to end the food crisis and effectively prevent future crises? Which actors should set the tone in shaping policy responses? And what good examples from the global South can we learn from?
In the wake of Russia's war of aggression on Ukraine, portrayals of a worsening global food crisis remain narrow and simplistic. With a focus on the impacts on global grain trade and escalating prices of fertilizers, solutions have demonstrated an almost blind trust in markets and continually failed to address the underlying structural causes of the food crisis.
Even as calls grow for rich countries to take responsibility for averting looming hunger, there is an urgent need for a critical, and inclusive, exploration of the underlying structural factors.
Convened by Heinrich Böll Stiftung as part of the series, Unsere Grüne Woche, this hybrid event will unpack neo-colonial dependencies as one of the structural causes of global hunger.
