Towards food sovereignty: local organisations at the heart of food sovereignty (Part II: Chapter 4)
‘Towards Food Sovereignty’ is an online book with full color photo illustrations and linked video and audio files. The fourth chapter describes the role of local organisations in sustaining local food systems, livelihoods and the environmen. The photos, video clips and audio recordings show farmers, pastoralists, indigenous peoples, fisherfolk, food workers and consumers all working to promote food sovereignty, -highlighting the importance of locally controlled and diverse food systems to sustain both people and nature.
This project looked at the ecological basis of food and agriculture, the social and environmental costs of modern food systems, and the policy reversals needed to democratise food systems.
