I view myself simply as an activist/stakeholder and my opinions on matters touching on the VALUE OF RESTORATIVE…

FOOD SECURITY FROM FARM TO INDUSTRY

FOOD SECURITY FROM FARM TO INDUSTRY

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

‘Food security’ as a theme has been reverberating the planet for over two (2) decades now. I still recall, upon my return to graduate school in 1997 to take up development studies (w/ global political economy foundation), that food security was already a wave in terms of advocacy clamors.

 

Since 1998, I was involved in couples of projects about food production, which includes…

The over-simplified narrative of the Somali famine.

The recent attention afforded to the Somali famine has mostly infuriated me. It’s not because I don’t care about those who are starving, quite the contrary; it’s more that I am infuriated with the way that the crisis is being painted in the media. For example:

The way it is so constantly referred to as a “natural disaster”, the result of drought or climate change, or some other ecological problem, as opposed to being a…

TEXTILE IN AFRICA: TAKING STOCK OF DEVELOPMENT TAKE-OFF

TEXTILE IN AFRICA: TAKING STOCK OF DEVELOPMENT TAKE-OFF

 Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

As in any enterprise, the industrial sector of any developing country begins with a ‘take off’ stage. In that stage or phase, capital goods industries considered as sine qua non for take-off are textiles, steel, and coal/energy.

 

Such a phase was well optimized in Western and Asian countries that are way past their own ‘infantile’ stage of industries. Textiles…

The Future State of the World, and What we can do about it

Recently I’ve been reading “The Future State of the World: As It Relates to the Australian Aid Program” which was commissioned by the Australian government ahead of the significant expansion of their overseas aid program.  It makes for interesting, if not disturbing, reading.  Anybody who has spent a few minutes thinking about the range of complex problems the world faces cannot be unaware of how interconnected the challenges are. …

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR ALL: FAST-TRACKING CLEAN ENERGY

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR ALL: FAST-TRACKING CLEAN ENERGY

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Green energy is making waves across the globe today. Diverse technologies that redound to sustainable energy are being developed at very dizzying paces.

 

Such developments are most welcome, given that the fossil fuel reserves of the planet are running out fast. Depletion could be experienced in just five (5) decades’ time. So far, the environment had…
