What is meant by Food Sovereignty

The problem of hunger is aggravating throughout the world today. The challenges and danger faced by the farmers incessantly escalating as a result of intensifying economic crisis, the imposition of globalization and add-on conditions by WTO, the lack of political will by governments to implement programs on food production, and many more. In the face of this crisis, it is apparent that a more comprehensive resistance against corporate domination in agriculture and food production is needed.

Part of this struggle is to present a counter policy on food and agriculture that is pro-people. Food sovereignty is a state where rights of agricultural workers are respected and promoted and where access to safe and nutritious food is made available for all people in the country.

Food Sovereignty is the peoples and communities fundamental right to determine their food and agricultural policies. It is the right to access and control of their means of production. It is the right to safe, culturally appropriate foods and sustainable food production.

The People's Food Sovereignty is a rights-based approach to achieving food security and safety and to solving the problems of hunger and malnutrition..
