Blog Examines Pros, Cons Of New Alliance For Food Security And Nutrition

A post in the SOS Children’s Villages blog discusses the “pros and cons” of the G8’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. The post examines arguments for and against the initiative, put forth by various non-governmental organizations. “It is too early to tell whether the New Alliance will prove successful in its aims and the signed-up African governments are therefore taking a gamble with their involvement. But given the desperate need for better harvests and increased food security in their nations, clearly they believe it’s a bet worth taking,” the post concludes (Luffman, 7/1).
