Agrofuels, Food Sovereignty, and the Contemporary Food Crisis
In this article, agrofuels are examined in the context of the world food price crisis and the “food sovereignty” pro-
posal for addressing the crisis. Both short- and long-term causes of the crisis are examined, and while agrofuels are
presently not a prime causal factor they are clearly contraindicated by the crisis. Food sovereignty, including a
moratorium on agrofuels, is argued to offer the best option for managing the crisis.
