Agroecology – Putting Food Sovereignty into Action
US-based food security organization, Why Hunger, produced this excellent publication on Agroecology in 2015. It highlights social movements effecting change at the grassroots level around the world. The report makes a case for increased support of agroecology, a science and practice where communities create self-determined solutions for producing healthy food, and conserving soil, water, and seeds and on working toward local food sovereignty. Many of the organizational success stories profiled here were referenced in the webinar by Raj Patel, including La Via Campesina and the Landless Workers Movement (MST).
