      Just at the moment that agricultural development has reached a crossroads, a new generation of innovative approaches to the fight against hunger has revealed itself. Despite the systematic, large-scale attempt to reduce poverty and hunger with the Green Revolution, a considerable percentage of the human family is still starving. The Worldwatch Institute has traveled in sub-Saharan Africa and will meet the Terra Madre communities and other groups to discuss environmentally sustainable ways to relieve world hunger and rural poverty.
