Interactive map shows food price spikes in poor communities around the world
A new interactive map published by Oxfam today shows how poor communities across the world are being hurt by high and volatile food prices. The ‘food price pressure points map’ provides a global snapshot of the impacts of the global food price crisis.
High and volatile food prices are one of the biggest political issues of 2011. The pressure points map can be embedded directly into any website to give audiences an easy way to raise their voice and take action on the food price crisis. The tool is part of Oxfam’s global GROW campaign to fix the broken food system.
The map available in English, Spanish and French can be found here: http://www.oxfamamerica.org/articles/food-price-spikes
