FOP News Analysis & Features - October 2011

Dear Readers,

Our October highlights have to do with agriculture, food, land issues, climate change, rural women, agrarian reform--all things interconnected. Find out in our write-up on World Food day why almost a billion people had no reason to celebrate this occasion; get new information and insights into what's happening with peoples and communities affected by Clean Development Mechanism projects--has the mechanism really worked and for whom?  This was taken up, and more, during the recent workshop that Focus on the Global South co-organized with CDM watch in heavily flooded Bangkok--it seems like nature also had a strong message to send to the organizers and participants of the workshop.  Listen to and watch the interesting, in most parts passionate (can't expect anything less with activist women), exchanges during a forum on the state of Filipino women, in particular about rural women.  Now, apart from the paper on CARPER we recently published through Focus Policy Review, you can also watch the discussions and dialogue during the forum on CARPER.  And in relation to CARPER, a new broad coalition has been forged to strongly push the P-Noy's government to implement agrarian reform, specifically to do something about the Hacienda Luisita debacle

Sincerely,
Editor
