Agroecology and Food Sovereignty in small-scale Fisheries
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 reports is to do exactly that: to cultivate the study and debate about Food Sovevereignty among youth, woman and men in all of WFFP's constituencies.
