brazil the u.s. and the e.u. tougher to the list of exporters europe is africa's main supplier in two thousand and seventeen the e.u. sold one hundred seventy five thousand tons of frozen chicken parts to ghana. e.u. subsidies mean it's cheaper than the chicken raised domestically and local farmers are paying the price. that. i'm here to give me to give. them this is where most of it arrives to a port in the capital. as europeans prefer the breast of the chicken the leftovers

12:35 pm
customers mostly people from his district. can't thank you so basically if it's a pocket this one is for soup even in. the us. 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 to see what's in it. for a while and. see any. evidence is also false when you think
12:36 pm
and i'm going to laugh. i really like your local one. oh my maid there for one because they look. so. focused and says the only way he stayed in business is by diversifying he has his own feed planet. cause the brits saw that there was. a reasonable price feed is the biggest cost for farmers 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. on dr where did you find if you. haven't read them by big government program at them or something about them look out of one so that we would receive. them and now

refugees here work together in the garden. they hope 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 in one of the venezuela misses here 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.
12:41 pm
in the greenery also helps improve air quality and quality of life for some end of work i meant 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 but i get a hint that 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 grandad 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
12:42 pm
a courageous break with tradition. but i mean if you didn't have any feel for it if the early phase of our organization was very difficult because we had to deal with a much she's more of our husbands. and i was as they said no we shouldn't do it but it was a waste of time. but also just a couple go but little by little we prove 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 yeah there's always more to learn about farming methods and increasing the yields. given you know what a lovely garden. group are is committed to organic farming with chemical fertilizers the women of ya know gandhi grow so much produce now they have some to
12:43 pm
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. the urban farmers can sell their crops at special organic produce markets b.-o. farriers. when we started we didn't even know how to do the bookkeeping when it was tough. but now we know more we're learning to grow as individuals and above all we're partners in the community. urban gardening projects around the world book to our group are as a model the pioneering organization is continuing to expand in quito 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 last year. that i
12:44 pm
knew. for the refugees from venezuela urban farming might prove the first step to a new life. 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 some goes bad on fields or if not properly refrigerated in storage containers or on the race which a lot of what gets dumped is actually perfectly edible europeans alone 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 night richmond in twenty eighteen some of them in europe. once a week stanislav sati like opens up his garage for the needy he distributes
12:45 pm
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 away they are legally obligated to give them to charity organizations. to frank of us 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 stanislav school raj 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
12:46 pm
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 be 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
12:47 pm
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. could be to put that the law now allows us to have much more bailable and a much broader range 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. the rules a pretty strict sometimes we have to look very closely at which fruit we're still allowed to deliver and which ones were 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. and that other potential beneficiaries will be
12:48 pm
using out. our complaint was about the state prescribing who the chains have to get the food to. some shops for example. but they're no longer allowed to do so despite the quantities available being enough for everyone. it's not enough says stanislav saudi like 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 are many people like me who say to themselves well i have my pension so 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 when i go with you know 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 the here. and
