Setting the New Agenda for Agricultural Research

The world is facing a crisis. We must promote sustainable agriculture for food security in the developing world. We must rise to the triple challenge of poverty reduction, food security and sound natural resource management. These challenges must be met in a political environment which is a dangerous mix of complacency, fiscal constraints, aid fatigue and fundamental disagreements about the magnitude of the problem and the appropriate paths to its solution.

Themes for the Third Millennium: The Challenge for Rural Sociology in an Urbanizing World

The 9th World Congress of Rural Sociology : "Rural Potentials for a Global Tomorrow", Bucharest, Romania

The start of the new millennium is an important occasion for humanity to reflect. Milestones are occasions to take stock and to peer into the future. They are an occasion for renewal.

Liberating the Muslim Mind: Towards a Muslim Renaissance

Consider the paradox of our times. We live in a world of plenty, of dazzling scientific advances and technological breakthroughs. Adventures in cyberspace are at hand. The Cold War is over, and with that we were offered the hope of global stability. Yet, our times are marred by conflict, violence, debilitating economic uncertainties and tragic poverty.

The New Abolitionists

 Earth Times    Download

The spate of articles about China’s food needs, the increases in the price of wheat, and the concerns of population growth in the poor countries of the world, have converged to shake the world's unwarranted complacency towards the issue of food security. This makes the upcoming food security summit particularly timely. It is indeed important that the world reassess the prospects for achieving food security for all, and abolish the scandal of hunger in a world of plenty, as we enter the third millennium.

Conference on Hunger and Poverty: Popular Coalition for Action

Salle de la Madeleine, Brussels, Belgium

I am honored to deliver this message on behalf of Mr. James D. Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank, who deeply regrets not being with us today. Two years ago, many of us met in Washington at the International Conference on Overcoming Global Hunger, where we reaffirmed our commitment to the abolition of hunger in our lifetime.

There is a Tide

28th AAUG Annual Conference, Washington, D.C

Thank you for giving me the occasion to say these few words. I will not use my time to deliver reams of statistics and technical discussions. Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the World, must undertake a profound renaissance in the status of Muslim societies around the world. It must play a role in leading the renaissance of the Muslim World as we approach the third millennium of our common era.

Strategic Water Resources Management: Themes for a New Millenium

Fifth Stockholm Water Symposium, Stockholm, Sweden

In the debate on managing the world’s finite natural resources, few issues have achieved the pre-eminence that water has. As an issue, water pervades society. It is critical for long-term economic development; for human health and social welfare, especially of the poor; and for environmental sustainability.

Frontiers are an invention of the mind. We set boundaries for ourselves and others by what we choose to see as reality and by what we choose to value.

But men and women are social creatures, and individual behavior is subjected to the control of widely shared social values. These boundaries that define the limits of acceptable behavior also tend to reflect and reinforce limits on acceptable thinking.

The Justly Balanced Society

I grew up in a civilized and secure environment where material well-being was taken for granted by the children, the social graces were held in high esteem by the parents, and culture was appreciated by all. Above all, the pursuit of knowledge, in the broadest sense, was idolized. My two sisters and I read English, French, and Arabic, on almost every subject. Conversation was substantive and sharp, almost with a debater's edge, tempered only by the civility enforced by our elders.

Faith and the Environment

 Ismail Serageldin    Download

As the Muslim world shakes and stirs in a fitful search to reaffirm its independent identity, it confronts the cultural as well as the political realities of a world dominated by the West generally and the United States specifically. This has lead many in the Muslim world to define their identities by emphasizing the "otherness" of the Muslim being from the hegemonic world context.1 Doubtless there is much truth to this "otherness", but emphasizing it at the outset leads to a "rejectionist" approach which, to my mind, is narrow and constrictive and in fact does not do justice to the richness and variety that Muslim culture has achieved in the past, and can achieve again, by the more self-assured process of adaptive assimilation that characterised its confrontations with the Greek and Roman cultures at the time of the early Muslim conquests of the seventh and eighth centuries A.D.

Managing Water Resources Sustainably: Challenges and Solutions for the New Millennium

As the dawn of a new millennium approaches, there is growing recognition that one of the biggest challenges confronting humanity is the need to better manage the earth’s precious water resources. It is therefore fitting that the French Republic is hosting an "International Conference on Water and Sustainable Development" – a "Water Summit" – that is bringing together the various stakeholders concerned with water issues.

Managing Global Water Resources Sustainably: A World Bank Perspective

It is a privilege to join you and to share my views on water, one of nature’s precious resources. Water permeates society, and its availability impacts all facets of human endeavor, be it economic, ecological, or social. Indeed, freshwater is being dubbed as the "oil of the late 20th century" – an essential, but increasingly scarce resource for post-industrial society.

Agriculture's Role in Sustainable Human Development: An Action Agenda for the New Millennium

We live in a world of plenty, of dazzling scientific advances and technological breakthroughs. Adventures in cyberspace are at hand. Yet, our times are marred by conflict, violence, debilitating economic uncertainties and tragic poverty.
