Voices and Flavours from the Earth: Visualising Food Sovereignty in the Andes, Chapter 2

Chapter 2. Actors

The Andean Program for Food Sovereignty began in 2007, when Michel Pimbert from IIED invited two South American NGOs, Pratec from Peru and Mainumby from Bolivia, to take part in a global initiative with three other established groups in West Africa, West Asia and South Asia. After a period of conversations dealing with the idea of democratising the governance of agriculture and food systems, the partners agreed that the peasant altiplano communities of the south Andean region should be the protagonists of the initiative. The bottom-up process would combine participatory methodologies to create safe spaces for deliberative processes regarding food and farming at the community-level linking with multiple levels.
