CARE Turns Down U.S. Food Aid - TIME: "A major international charity has decided to turn down millions of dollars worth of grain from the U.S. government to feed the world's hungry because it believes America's method of delivering vital food supplies does more harm than good [...]

The charity said selling food to fund its programs is inefficient and often delivers life-sustaining grain not to the hungry but to those who can afford it. It says it made the decision to abandon the controversial source of funding in 2005, but chose to make the decision public in an article in the International Herald Tribute on Wednesday in order to make a stand as Congress debates an overhaul of its food aid program in a new farm bill this summer...."

Population Environment Research Network - CyberSeminars: "The purpose of this cyberseminar is to examine the linkages among population, development and environmental processes in rural agrarian communities of the Sudano-Sahelian zone in West Africa. Droughts in the early 1970s and 1980s prompted many to proclaim this region as a Malthusian crisis in the making. Twenty years later, have these gloomy prognoses been borne out, or have agricultural systems coped and adapted to growing population numbers? Or is the picture more complex? This seminar will address these questions (and others themes listed below) through a focus on the results of recent research sponsored by the Programme for International Research on the Interactions between Population, Development and Environment (PRIPODE) of the French Foreign Ministry and the Committee for International Cooperation in National Research in Demography (CICRED)."
