five day minutes to venezuela's crisis in the fight to get aid into the country with a convoy of god own supporters an exclusive d.w. report alongside venezuelan journalist says our parties a closer look at the country's catastrophic conditions on the way to colombia a showdown on the border. starts march eighteenth. welcome to global three thousand. this week we focus on one of life's essential food. industrialised countries dump millions of tons of food every year while elsewhere in the world millions of people go hungry there are
solutions like the new bans in some countries on supermarkets dumping food that's past its best before date in many places it now has to be given to those in need and then there's urban gardening which means far shortage ernie's from fields to plate. chicken production however still has a long way to go. chickens have become a mass product estimates suggest that there are now more than twenty two billion of the birds on the planet. over ninety five million tons of chicken mates were produced last year. it's often frozen. then shipped around the world. in two thousand and eighteen brazil the us. yes and tough to the list of exporters europe is africa's
main supplier in two thousand and seventeen the e.u. sold one hundred thirty five thousand tons of frozen chicken parts to ghana. subsidies mean it's cheaper than she can raise domestically and local farmers are paying the price. i'm here for like the kids need to get and. this is where most of it arrives in the capital. as europeans prefer the breast of the chicken the leftovers end up here shipped in refrigerated containers halfway around the
world. on our way from the heart of the cold stores that sell it they tell us they only stop what customers want and the local farms couldn't meet the rising demand. these boxes have just made the journey from the u.s. state of georgia where the modern chicken industry was born these are from the netherlands belgium more than they can get their hands on. this customer wants his chicken even cheaper florence forty cooma argues he wouldn't even make a profit that. many of us would say oh. this is oldest and one of ghana's last poultry farmers. started with two hundred birds. now he's got twenty two thousand. the little ones and a hassle it's when they grow up that they get problematic.
and shows us a little trick for weighing their hands. that bone keeps them quiet. but catching chickens is the least of his worries. action. compared to that is this. because of the. imported chicken. competition in this are very high and then there is the how to live for us to compete with them the problem is augustine's chicken costs double the price of the cheap imports although he has one of the few large scale operations left in ghana it's nowhere near as efficient as its overseas rivals and like other farmers or piston doesn't have the infrastructure.
it's. customers or mostly people from his district. thank you so very easy to think that this one is for soup even. that. was. my. next day it's off to the market we'd like to know if there's a difference in quality between mass produced chicken from abroad and the local variety. it tastes good and is being fair and hard. for a while and. see. things is also false when you think that. i really like your local one.
focused and says the only way he stayed in business is by diversifying he has his own feed planet. cause little bits so that there will. be a reasonable price feed is the biggest cost for phone as europe subsidizes it giving its farmers an advantage and the e.u. has a raft of free trade deals with. africa that gives both sides free access to markets but african companies are too small to compete. and dr who was interviewed by the if you. cover the government a government job i met them was something that but then look out of one so that the reporters in. and we. got now forgot my word that i think.
what. the government has announced new import restrictions and says now local producers need to step up to the plate but which produces there are hardly any left there's nowhere got to do in time to get up. so if you're up in the chicken split this business i don't know what i'm going to do to get my family. i don't know what to do. this weekend level idea as we head to south america urban gardening is growing increasingly popular everywhere especially in large cities many people want to become more self-sufficient and it means you know exactly what you're eating too you are reports a catch here doing air travel to ecuador's rapidly expanding capital quito where thousands of gardens have sprung up they provide delicious food improve air quality
and make for a better social climate as well. quito is more than a thousand kilometers from venezuela yet some people who have fled the chaos there have made it to the ecuadorian capital even on foot. about fifty of them live in this compound at the edge of the city and keep busy tending the kitchen garden. i had of the one i water the garden i always think of my house back home in venezuela. we used to water the garden every evening it relieve the stress. this garden was set up with the hope of the city backed participatory urban agriculture program. so far the gardeners eat what they grow it's a step toward self-sufficiency. and his family fled venezuela last
autumn. when the communist i don't know if he threatened me and said we should leave the country because we were not cooperative and were therefore traitors. the cone here stands in stark contrast to the commotion and crisis back home. coming here the sound arriaga has left everything and everyone behind. left venezuela with my wife. and marianne the four of us. we have a house there. and we let the opposition use it while they were preparing for the elections. they see all. the
refugees here work together in the garden they help each other. some already know about farming and can instruct the others. you plant a seed here. i group are has had an impressive impact with its participatory approach involving the most vulnerable groups so that none of their business well are necessary our friends from venezuela need help with this project we can offer support to migrants and refugees in our country so they can find some stability and integrate in our society whether you take it out. this is just one of four thousand urban farming plots across quito supported by acro par ranging from a few square metres on a rooftop to large fields at the edge of town. the aim in each case is to ease access to healthy food for poor and marginalized people.
the greenery also helps improve air quality and quality of life but some end up working to meant that you either see that the increase in biodiversity in the area reduces urban heat islands creates new spaces and micro-climates in which people can have a better life back into him where they are is that of course i meant that. over the past four decades quito has grown almost five fold the population has tripled to more than two and a half million a group are helps further food security job creation environmental management social inclusion and gender equality. ya know grand day used to be a tranquil village until it was swallowed up by the city but some open spaces survived and can be used to grow food a group of women run this urban farm their work marks a courageous break with tradition. but i mean if you're
a lot of anything with if the early phase of our organization was very difficult because we had to deal with them i choose more of our husbands. and i was afraid they said no we shouldn't do it but it was a waste of time. but also just a couple little by little we proved that our value as women goes beyond being mothers. we can do all kinds of things including tending the land and feeding our families yet we can contribute economically little about the economic group our staff regularly visit and bring advice on how to run their ventures when does the us know there's always more to learn about farming methods and increasing the yields. ok when you know what a lovely garden. group are is committed to organic farming with old chemical fertilisers the women of ya know grand day grows so much produce now they have some
to sell the project thought that is the implement this by promoting organic farming the project has also helped create skills especially among women that allow them to make a living through agriculture. this is the logic we do in. the urban farmers can sell their crops at special organic produce markets b.-o. farias buy something that when we started we didn't even know how to do the bookkeeping and when it was the stuff but now we know more we're learning to grow as individuals and above all we're partners in the community the most company of urban gardening projects around the world book to our group are as a model the pioneering organization is continuing to expand in quito as i meant the less you ask. me and the area devoted to urban farming here in quito is growing about three hectares or about two hundred different plots each year over the sea and those where the labels cow that i knew. for the refugees from venezuela
urban farming might prove the first step to a new life. for . and into the trash with aids worldwide around one point three billion tons of food is wasted every year much of it ends up in landfills bad on fields property refrigerated in storage containers. a lot of what gets dumped is perfectly edible europeans throw away around one hundred fifteen kilos of food per person per year that shocking considering eight hundred twenty one million people worldwide suffered from chronic on the richmond in twenty eight seeing some of them in the. once a week stanislav opens up his garage for the needy he distributes groceries mostly
to pensioners and single mothers today he has pizzas that have almost reached their sell by date supermarkets are no longer allowed to throw these products way they are legally obligated to give them to charity organizations. march or front covers happy she can now invite her grandchildren to dinner. i have a very small monthly pension like one hundred fifty euros and if you have to buy coal and pay for electricity it can get pretty bad. drops by standers lives garage every week she's only thirty but is unable to work due to heart problems she's eligible for a mere one hundred sixty euros of government support not enough to get by on stanislav gives her three pizzas and some beverages which will keep the family going for about five days. this is do you know. at first i was ashamed to come here because a stranger was just passing out food and i'd never done anything like that asking
a stranger for food even though i know he helps other people to me he explained to me how it works that i should come every thursday at a certain time so that's what i do now automatically. still. young kid me picks up food from supermarkets in and around prague every day. the law requires stores to give him goods that are about to expire. and that's a good thing says the employee at the prague food bank. that's terrible when you see how many people have nothing to eat over a week and then all these things end up in the garbage in the supermarket it's just terrible. and you yogurt fruit and chocolate are stacked in boxes in the prague food bank the charity distributes ten tons of food daily to twenty two thousand needy people in and around the czech capital almost nothing is thrown away here the
food is picked up directly or distributed to homeless shelters and soup kitchens. mama nadi could be to put that in the law now allows us to have much more vailable and a much broader range of study we now have a lot more perishable including fruit and vegetables. supermarkets think the law is wrong they've already cooperated with aid organizations in the past the guidelines merely increase the bureaucracy they say. bend. the rules a pretty strict sometimes we have to look very closely at which fruit we're still allowed to deliver and which ones we're required to throw away and the charities have to prove that the fresh produce is passed on quickly. but it wasn't the supermarkets who took the issue to the constitutional court senior politicians argued that it reminded them of cars. i mean as i'm and that other potential beneficiaries will losing out. our complaint was about the state
prescribing who the chains have to give the food to. some shops for example used to get the product. but they're no longer allowed to do so despite the quantities available being enough for everyone. it's not enough says stanislav sadly that due to high food prices even regular pensioners are dependent on his help in his opinion the state is reluctant to help those in need but. the problem is that there aren't many people like me who say to themselves well i have my pension i don't need to earn money and so i can help on a volunteer basis i don't add anything when i do this. stanislav would now like a refrigerator in his garage so that he can legally store and distribute even more but the czech republic is by no means a paradise for the needy. and
now to north africa and then almost forgotten conflict since one nine hundred seventy three the polish sario front national liberation movement has been campaigning for an independent state in the western sahara. is fighting raged in the desert first against spanish colonial rule then against occupation by morocco and mauritania hundreds of thousands of militants and their families fled the area to camps in algeria has been an armistice since one nine hundred ninety one but western sahara remains divided it's west in most regions are governed by morocco eastern and southern areas run by the policy front hundred sixty thousand refugees still living in camps in the algerian desert. this car is delivering. it's out in the desert. and i know it makes me proud to have
established the first pizzeria in the refugee camps. and that i've done it alone as a woman using my own resources. to a lot of and. a pizza delivery service in algeria so hard desert with a young woman at the wheel. twenty eight year old hindu money is one of the ingredients in this rather unusual story. hundreds of thousands of saeed the indigenous people from western sahara have lived in these refugee camps for many years now they fled here after baracoa annexed their homeland. mani grew up in a camp like this that's all she's ever known. but now she can live her dream of having her own pizza service that she delivers to families like many as saddam is whose daily routine is defined by this wasteland. they want to stay here
until they get their homeland back. and. we're suffering under these difficult conditions for forty years we've lived in tents in extreme temperatures with no livelihoods yet. i can help people with my service it brings a bit of variety that. people are happy to see me. and then she shows us her pride and joy a fast food stand in the refugee camp. it speciality is pizza with camel meat called pizza. in the morning she meets with her employees all young women money who single wants to help other women find jobs she views that as her mission . it all started with a cooking competition which money won. she used the prize money to buy her first of
a and then she got a loan through the united nations. since then business has been growing and she now employs eight pizza chefs high p.s.a. i'm happy that i can work here that many women would like to because you can't get a job anywhere else so no matter how hard you try some of our business will say that and it's my goal to hire women and young people can hardly find work in the refugee camps and it's even more difficult for young women. sit there. but money has made it. with advertisements like this she promotes her project and her camel pizza. business is brisk in the evening at the refugee camps you can get a pizza for the equivalent of two euro's. many people are looking for something to
spice up the monotony of life here money has something of a cult status she's a young woman with her own business who travels the region on her own with her pizzas that respect. i'm so happy that there's finally a pizzeria in the camp and i hope that hindu will also pursue other projects for. the. extolled it is quite unusual for a woman to open a pizzeria all by herself and for her to work from morning till late at night at about sixty ordinary is sal go extro the n.r.a. or. the next day money is out on the road again. she passes by reminders of the western sahara war. some of the most seriously injured war veterans live in a dilapidated home outside the camp why. it's important for
money to show solidarity. she brings a free pizza for ahmed her tidy who was paralyzed with his spine was damaged in an air strike in one nine hundred eighty. i regret nothing i'm proud of my war ones because i got them fighting for a fair and legal cause. of the conflict is one of the oldest in africa but the world has forgotten this war and its fighters. it's hard to remain optimistic about things in this part of the world. many people have lost hope in a brighter future. but not mommy. she shows us her recently opened second pizzeria which is of course stuff by women. money is next plan is to open a bakery. it's back to the main restaurant in the evening.
money is an inspiration for many she cares about camel pizza rights for women and the serai future. them that it's up. to keep that in you i still have so many dreams and i hope our lives will change them day and that my lady you know will gain independence. for. him to my knee herself has been independent for a long time and that makes her the owner of the pizzeria in the desert an unusual success story. for more inspiring stories check out our new facebook page d.w. women for everyone who believes in gender equality women still suffer widespread
