Here are two interesting articles on some of the impacts that the actions (and inaction) of rich countries on poor countries...

The first highlights the threat that European fishing boats pose to African fish stocks, with competition for natural resources pushing up prices, extraction rates and the pressures on alternative sources of protein, such as bushmeat.

The second highlights the rich world's failure to deliver on long-standing promises in terms of implementing fairer trade by reducing subsidies to farmers in the US, EU and Japan and opening up access to life-saving drugs at affordable prices.
