The European Union has urged foreign investors in agricultural land in developing regions such as Africa to respect local human rights, livelihoods and resources. Sharp rises in global food prices in 2008 prompted major food importers such as Saudi Arabia, China and South Korea to lease farmland abroad - often in Africa - to secure food for their populations.
To increase food security in developing countries, the European Commission has suggested that small-scale farmers must be supported and efforts must be made to ensure that their land rights are respected. Most of the world's poor and hungry live in rural areas, where small-scale agriculture constitutes the main economic activity, notes the European Commission in a policy paper published on 31 March.
