Recently on The New Security Beat

The New Security Beat (a blog run by the Environmental Change and Security Program at the prestigious Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars) is currently running an interesting article on what it terms "The Race for the World's Farmland." (In particular, the trend is investment from capital-rich food-importing countries in underdeveloped ones, and while Africa is seeing particularly large-scale investment of this kind, parts of southern Asia, and the former Soviet Union, are also seeing such moves-which certainly have their dark side, explored in the piece.)

And of course, the latest "Reading Radar" weekly round-up contains plenty of interest.
