Independent Reading Sheets

Why is food supply Geography?

Global patterns of food supply, consumption and trade.

The geopolitics of food.

Contrasting agricultural food production systems


commercial,
subsistence, intensive, extensive, arable, livestock,
and mixed

farming.

The Green Revolution, genetic modification and other high
technology approaches,


Managing food supply


strategies to

increase production: land
colonisation, land reform, commercialisation,
appropriate/intermediate technology solutions.

Managing food supply


strategies to control the level and nature
of food production as evidenced in the European Union: subsidies,
tar
iffs, intervention, pricing, quotas; non
-
market policies, set
aside and environmental stewardship.

Changes in demand


the growing demand from richer countries
for high value food exports from poorer countries, all year
demand for seasonal foodstuffs, inc
reasing demand for organic
produce, moves towards local/regional sourcing of foodstuffs.

Food supplies in a globalising economy


the role of transnational
corporations in food production, processing and distribution.
Environmental aspects of the global t
rade in foodstuffs.

The potential for sustainable food supplies.

Case studies of two contrasting approaches to managing food
supply and demand.
