  6. Land for Agroecology in Europe

    24 ဖေဖေါ်ဝါရီလ 2021

    The time has come for a transformation of Europe’s food systems. Small-scale food producers, peasants, community groups, environmental justice activists and others have been calling for years for a shift towards agriculture that nourishes communities, regenerates ecosystems, and provides decent and sustainable livelihoods. The concept of agroecology encompasses these ambitions, referring to the science, movement, and practice of working with nature to build food sovereignty. The climate crisis and the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic have only made it clearer how urgent such a transformation is.

  7. Roots of Resilience

    24 ဖေဖေါ်ဝါရီလ 2021

    Land politics – who controls what land, how is it used, for how long, for what purposes and to whose benefit – is a central pillar of this debate. As politicians across Europe struggle to balance the urgent need for climate action with the need to strengthen equity and popular support for new policies, the risk of societal discord looms large, fuelled by farmer protests, perceptions of ‘agri-bashing,’ and long-running tensions between conservation movements and agricultural communities. This has been made more complicated by the interweaving of questions of land and national identity and an apparently increasing disconnect between those living in rural and urban areas.

  8. What can we learn from the world of pastoralism for wider agrarian struggles?

    On 21 November 1997, small-scale fishers from across the world formed a global movement and set sail for a long journey to protect nature and their human rights. Ever since, the World Forum of Fisher Peoples (WFFP) have celebrated this day as World Fisheries Day and even in times of the COVID-19 crisis, they continue the tradition of raising their voices at this special moment.

  11. Protecting Injustice

    • Alberto Alonso-Fradejas
    16 အောက်တိုဘာလ 2020

    The way that ownership and control of land and resources is managed and understood is changing globally, even as changes in financial markets and the climate catastrophe are putting increasing pressure on land and land-based resources. The changes taking place can appear progressive and positive - for example, more and more governments and other actors now recognize collective ownership of land. But the way change is taking place is less transformative than it looks and is in fact creating new opportunities for corporations to profit from land and natural resources, to the detriment of local communities. Our latest report explores how and why this change is taking place, what actors are helping to shape our understanding and management of land and natural resources, and who stands to benefit and to lose from these changes.

  12. l’« agroécologie bidon »

    13 အောက်တိုဘာလ 2020

    L’agroécologie a gagné du terrain ces dernières années, à mesure que le besoin de transformer notre système agroalimentaire devenait de plus en plus évident. Les crises alimentaire et financière de 2008 et l’aggravement des crises climatique et environnementale ont mis en lumière les problèmes profonds que comporte notre manière de produire et de consommer les aliments. Les mouvements mondiaux pour la justice agraire et la souveraineté alimentaire, organisés autour de points de convergence tels que le Forum de Nyéléni, ont mis l’accent sur l’importance de l’agroécologie dans cette transformation. Ils ont souligné le caractère politique de l’agroécologie : « elle nous demande de remettre en cause et de transformer les structures de pouvoir de nos sociétés. »

  13. ‘Junk Agroecology’

    13 အောက်တိုဘာလ 2020

    Agroecology has gained ground in recent years as the need to transform our agrifood system becomes increasingly clear. The food and financial crises of 2008, and the deepening climate and environmental crises, have revealed deep challenges for the way we produce and consume food. Global agrarian justice and food sovereignty movements, organised in global convergences like the Nyéléni Forum, have emphasised the importance of agroecology in this transformation. They highlight the political nature of agroecology: ‘it requires us to challenge and transform structures of power in society'.

    03 ဇူလိုင်လ 2020

    How do we make sense of the diverse realities that exist at the intersection of migration and fisheries in Europe? This brief article is an initial attempt to understand the different ways that people who migrate interact with the European fisheries sector, and to contextualise this question by providing some background about the structural changes in the European fisheries sector which may shape who migrates, who fishes and under what conditions.

    Policy briefing

    The current economic crisis is merely triggered by COVID-19, argues Jan Douwe van der Ploeg. The real causes reside in the specificity of today’s global economic structure and especially in three key features that lie at its core. In this policy brief he discusses these key features with reference to farming and food and presents building blocks for the construction of resilient alternatives to the current crisis.

  20. Gender and fisheries in Indonesia

    18 ဇွန်လ 2020

    This article examines processes through a feminist lens in order to understand the threats and opportunities for food sovereignty in fishing communities. Based on action research in these affected fishing communities, and in light of ongoing mobilizations against this kind of large-scale development logic and projects, we argue that women are key protagonists in the struggle for food sovereignty in fisher communities.
