Power issues missing

Dear Juergen, while I'm happy to observe positive developments regarding 'climate smart agriculture' on the international agenda, I'm worried to what extent issues beyond productivity gains are considered. In particular, the debate seems to fall short on notions such as distributive and procedural justice, thus fair distribution of and access to agricultural produce. To my mind, local-level improvements towards 'climate smart' agriculture can only be effective if market- and policy-rooted structural factors along the agricultural value chain are tackled at the same time. Please have a look at our recent publication: https://ideas4sustainability.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/2014_loos_sust_intensification.pdf
