UN Live United Nations Webcast – – Sustainable development for fighting poverty – Sustainable Development Dialogues, Rio+20

A web-cast from Rio+ about sustainability, most of the others available so far are about corporates.  As well as the young female who silenced the World when she gave a speech 20 years ago being present.  A Mr Supe was on the panel and his message was, ‘Small farm, Small farm, Small farm.  He pointed out that $275 Billion of subsidies went into fertilisers and pesticides.  While a couple of reports one by Julius Protina and another by the FAO, highlighted how sustainable farming practices using old methods were more productive than intensive farming.  And it was through assisting these small farmers  not corporations was the only way ahead.  His comments come about 50 minutes in.
