    L'article retrace la genèse de la crise alimentaire mondiale qui a atteint son paroxysme avec l'envolée dramatique des prix alimentaires mondiaux en 2007/2008 et les émeutes de la faim qui s'ensuivirent. Il décrit la réaction de la communauté d'aide internationale, qui a créé un « Partenariat mondial pour l'agriculture et la sécurité alimentaire » et analyse de façon critique dans quelle mesure ce dernier a contribué à réduire le nombre des personnes souffrant de la faim, à savoir 925 millions de personnes aujourd'hui.
