Food Sovereignty

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review


Food sovereignty is a radically different paradigm to conventional food and agriculture development. This paper first defines ‘food sovereignty’ and briefly describes the origins and history of this alternative policy framework for food and agriculture. The second part of this paper then analyses in more detail some of the more fundamental differences between the practices of food sovereignty and conventional approaches to food and agricultural development. Some of the key ecological, economic, political and social challenges for the spread and scaling up of food sovereignty are highlighted here.
