Tell governments and big companies to be honest about their actions!

Enough Food For Everyone IF governments and big companies are honest about their actions that stop people getting enough food.

The UK Government should put the issue of large-scale corporate 'land grabs' in developing countries on the G8's agenda, and promote action to help improve their governance, transparency and accountability. There must be safeguards to ensure that the poorest people, who could often use this land to grow food, don't lose out as a result.

The UK Government should help ensure that developing countries can raise enough from taxes to tackle hunger and build a more secure food system by introducing a requirement in its Finance Bill for UK companies and wealthy individuals to report their use of tax schemes that have an impact on developing countries.
