American Jewish World Service, one of the most effective international anti-poverty and pro-development organizations in the worlds, has a new blog up. It’s called Global Voices, and features not only the work of AJWS grantees but also how issues of poverty and human rights interact with ecosystem protection. Some of the recent posts focus on issues such as the ecological impact of dams, the dangers of tilapia farming, controversies surrounding genetically-modified Mexican maize, Bolivia’s new “Protection of Mother Earth” law, the justice of food consumption and production, and water shortages in the Middle East. You might also recall that AJWS sponsored perhaps the funniest charity video ever, produced by Judd Apatow.
