2015-2016 Report from the World Agriculture Learning Group (WALG)
of the Baltimore County and Baltimore City League of Women Voters
This report was prepared by the World Agriculture Learning Group (WALG) of the Baltimore County and Baltimore City League of Woman Voters. The impetus for establishing WALG was the LWVUS 's recent effort to update its national position on agriculture. Despite the fact that U.S policies and programs are highly instrumental in shaping the world's agricultural system, the League's update study did not address international agricultural concerns. In September 2015, our group decided to educate ourselves about these broader concerns and have been meeting monthly to discuss readings on a board range of world agricultural issues.
