05 | Short Crop

In 2008 the global food crisis hit the headlines. The poorest nations were hardest hit by rising food prices. Dealing with food shortages is not just a matter of boosting crop production but is often a matter of just and equitable distribution.

Some commentators have pointed to the problem of emerged economies exploiting the resources of the emerging economies. In addition, climate issues greatly affect land usage and the availability of food.

Two TiltShift teams are tackling Short Crop projects, with one of them combating the rising obesity epidemic in the US by increasing access to healthy, low cost food options, and the other incentivising the purchase (and hence production) of local farm produce.
