The Greens/EFA conference on Access to Land and Food: How to Stop Global Land Grabbing

International capital, multinational enterprises and even some governments are increasingly taking control over farmland around the world. Large amounts of highly productive land is taken away from farmers, mainly in developing countries but also within the EU and Central and Eastern Europe. The event wants to highlight the problem of land grabbing in the global food crisis and the human right to food, present existing alternative land management models and encourage decision makers to implement new instruments for sustainable land ownership models.
