The answer to this question lies, first, in dismantling the myths that surround the industrial mode of food production which relies heavily on chemical inputs and seed monopolies and then examining, the costs and benefits of monocultures vs biodiversity; soil depletion vs soil regenearation via multicropping; sustainable agriculture vs cash-cropping; localisation vs globalisation; and co-operative farming vs corporate profit.

Vandana Shiva advocates a powerful alternative to this scenario; reclaming the right to food security through sustainable practises that value biodiversity and seed sovereignty, creating a future in which no one goes hungry.
