The Global Food Crisis Mapped

As part of their Grow campaign, Oxfam have just released the map below, which shows the “Food price pressure points”. When looking closer, you can also see how dependent the worst off countries are on imports for food consumption. Although not necessarily the most informative graphics, they do carry a story, and they are visually pleasing. Good job, Oxfam!

I'm pretty much in love with a data. Or, the knowledge we can extract from it. Or, rather, the better decisions that can be made based on said knowledge.I hold a M.Sc in Sociology a MA in Historical Social Enquiry (Social History + Historical Sociology + Global Development), and work as Information Management Lead at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. I guess you can call me a Computational Sociologist of Global Development and Humanitarian Action. No less.That's pretty much it, really.
