FOOD, HUNGER & THE ENVIRONMENT

Building on Frances Moore Lappé’s path-breaking Diet for a Small Planet, the Institute continues to combat the myth of scarcity in a world of plenty.  Frances and Anna Lappé’s Hope’s Edge chronicles their journey on five continents exploring people-powered movements aligning farming with ecological and human well-being.

Frances' powerful book EcoMind: Changing the Way We Think, to Create the World We Want navigates from "thought traps" to "thought leaps," as challenges morph into opportunities which motivate action.  Then, drawing on their earlier classic study, Frances and Joseph Collins released the fully rewritten World Hunger: 10 Myths. Senior Researcher Timothy A. Wise extends the institute’s work with Eating Tomorrow: Agribusiness, Family Farmers, and the Battle for the Future of Food .

Frances is working on her new book, It's Not Too Late! 

 

It’s Not Too Late! offers a surprising and motivating new lens through which to see the climate crisis. Though many feel overwhelmed and tempted to give up, we find a genuine ray of hope: The very severity of the climate crisis could trigger a historic awakening, enabling us to grasp causal connections among the climate crisis, our broken political system, and our economic distress.

From 2016-2020 current SPI Advisor Timothy A. Wise directed this program to provide research and analysis on global, national, and local efforts to promote climate-resilient sustainable agricultural development in some of the world’s poorest countries. That research led to his book, Eating Tomorrow, and an extensive series of articles, presentations, and interviews which are collected on these pages. His ongoing research and writing can be found on his Author Page and his program page on the Future of Food at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy.
