Groups warn against Zuma's agriculture prize at COP17

This was issued as a joint press release by the Gaia Foundation, African Biodiversity Network (ABN) and the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy during the Durban UNFCCC climate talks. It came as a response to Jacob Zuma's declared intention to have a decision on agriculture while the World Bank was promoting so-called "Climate Smart Agriculture" and carbon offsets as the future of African agriculture and climate solutions.
