Towards Food Sovereignty
Journal, 20 pages
Localised food systems provide the foundations of people’s nutrition, incomes, economies,ecologies and culture throughout the world. In this way food is primarily sold, processed,
resold and consumed locally, with many people deriving their incomes and livelihoods through work and activities at different points of the food chain, from seed to plate. These local food systems provide a livelihood for more than 2.5 billion small-scale farmers, pastoralists, forest dwellers and artisanal fisherfolk worldwide.
