Our video guest this week: Prof. De Schutter, UN Special Rapporteur

Our video guests this week is Professor Olivier De Schutter, he is the  United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food. In this interview, Prof. De Schutter explains why the office of the UN special Rapporteur on the Right to Food cares about large scale land acquisitions and how the right to food can be conciliated with large scale land acquisitions. He further addresses the right to food in the context of international investment law. Prof. De Schutter also gives examples of alternatives to large scale farming methods and pledges for the often neglected side effects of community based small scale farming. This interview was given as a contribution to the ACP Regional Briefing on Land access, land acquisitions and rural development held in Yaoundé from the 27th to 28th September, 2010. This event has been organized by the CTA and its partners.
