This new brief by Alejandro Litovsky, of the Earth Security Institute, and Puvan Selvanathan, of the United Nations Global Compact, explores how to achieve a coordinated approach by business, government and civil society through strategic analysis of the barriers we currently face to collaboration for sustainable agriculture.

reaping the dragons teeth - coverSynopsis: Global agricultural systems have grown to resemble the Greek myth of Cadmus, a Phoenician prince and the bringer of literacy and civilization. He killed a sacred dragon. The goddess Athena told him to sow its teeth, from which sprang a group of ferocious warriors. Cadmus threw a precious jewel into the midst of the warriors. They turned on each other trying to seize the stone for themselves. Only five survived and they joined Cadmus to found the great ancient city of Thebes.

This classical legend gave rise to the phrase ‘to sow dragon’s teeth’, which is used as a metaphor for doing something that has the effect of fomenting disputes. We see disputes over resources, endemic inequality, and food waste amid so much hunger. Many regions are acutely water-stressed, with many more expected to be so in the next two decades. Land ownership is becoming a source of conflict when investments disregard the impacts on local people and resources.

Is the urgent task of setting agriculture onto a sustainable path simply a Greek tragedy?
