Food Security vs Legalising Cannabis

Cannabis, also known as marijuana or weed, has long held the attention of academia and policy makers on the question of whether its legalisation would be beneficial or detrimental for social values, public health and average income. Despite this, Canada has become only the second country after Uruguay to legalise cannabis for recreational use. The examples of Canada and Uruguay to legalise cannabis indicate a positive approach in dealing with such narcotics, and represent a stark contrast when compared to former policies. Recently, I found it quite interesting to read a study referred by Evening Standard (ES) (Printed Paper Monday, 01 July 2019) UK. The study has claimed that “63 percent of Londoners think UK should follow Canada and make cannabis legal”. 


A Concern of Food Security and the Outbreak of Locust

Background

Food security has been the biggest challenge since the outbreak of COVID-19 (Corona) has broken out from Wuhan, China in December last year. The world has paid huge attention to control transmitting COVID-19, health hazards and panic. Due to what, basic requirements like food, work, income and livelihood have categorically been put in less priority automatically. The severity of Corona virus has once again proved that the food should be categorised as a top priority. In another word, no one is able to function well without food. Food, of course, is an important measure of human health and well-being.


Philanthropy for an equitable society

Background

Inequality, today, is intolerable. During globalisation private investment was highly encouraged for profit and the role of government was defined as a coordinator and welfare provider. Private sector obviously as a profit maker have done tremendous progress, but government is forced to apply austerity measures and now ‘welfare state’ is being questioned by experts. Globalisation was effective during the transition that appeared after the collapse of  Soviet Union and Berlin Wall, but since global  financial crisis began in 2007 the world economy has been hanging on the cliff to get up. Financial crisis, indeed, the outcome of Washington Consensus and finally inequality too.

Community supported agriculture to ensure wellbeing, food security and environment in the UK

INTRODUCTION and PROBLEM STATEMENT

Agriculture is the source of food which is heavily exhausted due to human activities and Greenhouse Gas emission. Moreover, some of the planetary boundaries have already crossed their limitations and posed a risk of collapse (Rockström, et al., 2009). Besides that, hunger, obesity, diabetics, food waste, migration, conflict and climate change are entangled globally with food poverty and weak governance, which has been affecting agriculture negatively. In contrast, increasing global population need more 62 percent food by 2050.


Water, Air and Land Nexus: A Safe Space for Preserving Climate and Achieving Food Security

Water, Air and Land

According to the classical economist David Ricardo, the drivers of food production such as water, air and land (WAL) are free gifts from nature. No one should have to pay any price to have them supplied, because they are produced and delivered by nature with no cost. However, modern economists argue that this idea helps only rent seekers, and that such natural resources are not truly free. The supply of land in a country is, after all, completely inelastic. 

Humans benefit hugely from the services delivered by nature. However,


Connecting People with Food Policy: Gathering and Translating Experiences

A Highlight

The theme ‘gathering and translating evidence of lived experience of food-related problem’ of the program sounded me very inquisitive before entering the Oliver Thompson Lecture Theatre of City, University of London to participate the 2018 City Food Policy Symposium on 25th of April. Although, I am late to share this post however sharing experience is always interesting. The program was based on the citizen-led approach to address how to gather live experience of food problem and translate it into effective food policy. The massage of the program was food policy based on the live experience of a citizen is effective in delivering its goals to the targeted group or

Public-Private Partnership: Experience from the UK to Nepal

  1. Introduction

The figure of the world is changing fast due to the size of population, technology, public aspiration and development approach. Hunger used to be the problem of developing world but now obesity has also been added to the urgent list . Health care was insufficient and the mortality rate was high but now it has been technologically improved and added ageing population as another challenging issue. Migration creates a manpower shortage in one place and over in another place. Hence, poverty and inequality used to be the problem of underdeveloped society but now they have been moving into developed area, towns and cities. Beside that, resource constraints are the biggest challenge; not enough to cover the need.

Economic Recovery: Productive Investment or Destructive Austerity?

It is an indication of failure of Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP) which is also known as globalization or Washington consensus* or neo-liberalism as nations are finally forced to work through austerity. At the beginning, the US Treasury Department, the IMF and World Bank were the major stakeholders (designers) of the SAP. ‘‘Private investment was highly encouraged for profit and the role of government was defined as a coordinator and welfare provider but now, private sector obviously as a profit maker, has done tremendous progress, whereas government is forced to apply austerity measures and finally ‘welfare state’ is being questioned.’’.
