Food Sovereignty and Agroecology in Small-scale Fisheries

September 20, 2017 | 7th General Assembly, News, Report | 0 Comments |

The importance of Food Sovereignty – as a means, a goal, and a global movement – is long recognized by  the  WFFP  leadership:  Food  Sovereignty  is  a  political  agenda  of  small-scale  food  producers  in  the  defense  of  our  rivers,  lakes,  oceans  and  land.  It  is  a  response  to  the  encroachment  of  our  food  system  by  multinational  corporations  who,  in  the  context  of  fisheries,  seek  to  privatize  and  consolidate  fishing  rights in the hands of the few. It is for these reasons that WFFP established a working group to take Food Sovereignty to the fishing communities of all our member organisations. The main purpose of this new report is to do exactly that: to cultivate the study and debate about Food Sovereignty among youth, women and men in all of WFFP’s constituencies.  –  Naseegh Jaffer, WFFP General Secretary.
