UnderMining Agriculture: How the Extractive Industries Threaten our Food Systems

Rec_Undermining_AgricultureA recent report from the GAIA Foundation and allies exposes how the world’s food production and millions of small farmers and communities are under increasing threat from the rapid expansion of mining. The report looks at: “the real impact of mining – from prospecting and operations right through to closure – on agriculture, food production, soil fertility, fresh water systems, the air that we breathe, and our already challenged climate. Without healthy ecosystems there can be no healthy food. Without water there can be no life.”
