BUILDING RESILIENCE AND FOOD SOVEREIGNTY
As successfully meeting development and sustainability goals requires a paradigm shift, CIDSE advocates for radical changes towards just, resilient and sustainable models of food systems. We strongly believe that agroecology and its principles – when firmly rooted in food sovereignty and climate justice – are the way to move away from a model that threatens present and future agricultural production and food security (biodiversity losses, soil degradation, soil erosion…) while meeting the long-term goal of 1.5°C and contributing to the full realisation of the right to food.
CIDSE currently works to promote and advocate for agroecology within debates in civil society on these issues, and in high-level policy processes. We also gather and share experiences and knowledge in our network on agroecological systems and with movements that are applying the principles of agroecology.
To understand more about our position on food systems, read our landmark publication ‘The Principles of Agroecology’, available in 7 languages in pdf or as a multimedia website.
