3    Introduction BY MARC J. COHEN
New technologies are forcing rapid globalization of markets, and the agriculture industry has no
choice but to adapt. There is, however, a stark disparity between developed and developing nations:
researchers in developed nations are embracing a biotech and GMO revolution, while developing
nations are struggling to manage unfavorable intellectual property laws and trade barriers. Biofuel
production stretches agricultural resources in the North, famine cripples economies in the South,
the Green Revolution saves lives in the East, and the WTO rules against governments in the West.
Though policy experts participating in the current round of trade negotiations in Doha are
attempting to address the challenges facing farmers, the outcome is unclear. This forum aims to
explore the fate of our farms in the 2Ist century.
