A SEED Europe (Action for Solidarity, Equality, Environment, and Development Europe)

A SEED is a network that initiates actions and campaigns on environmental and social justice issues. A SEED was established by young people in 1991 in response to the UNCED Earth Summit proceedings in Rio and aimed to forge alliances among young people committed to social and environmental justice. Its current campaigns are centred on issues surrounding the production, distribution and consumption of food (small, local organic farms instead of agribusiness, biotechnology and supermarkets selling genetically modified food); and the coordination of the World Bank Boycott in Europe. Its main activities are promoting discussion, encouraging positive action, distributing publications and coordinating meetings.

International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) a specialized agency of the United Nations, was established as an international financial institution in 1977 as one of the major outcomes of the 1974 World Food Conference. The Conference was organized in response to the food crises of the early 1970s that primarily affected the Sahelian countries of Africa. The conference resolved that "an International Fund for Agricultural Development should be established immediately to finance agricultural development projects primarily for food production in the developing countries". One of the most important insights emerging from the conference was that the causes of food insecurity and famine were not so much failures in food production, but structural problems relating to poverty and to the fact that the majority of the developing world’s poor populations were concentrated in rural areas.
