The promise of sustainable and inclusive agricultural transformation
Over the past week, the staff present at COP23 has reflected, discussed and facilitated spaces for exchange on agroecology and sustainable lifestyles, with members and allies from around the world. Here are some reflections and takeaways from the week's major events.
On October 26, at the Agroecology Europe Forum in Lyon, CIDSE organized a workshop entitled "Exploring Agroecology Principles", to exchange and confront ideas around the intersections between agroecology and social justice, gender, youth, economic viability and climate resilience. Here are some of the highlights from the discussion tables.
This month, from 25 – 27 October, CIDSE will participate in the First Agroecology Europe Forum, to be held in Lyon, France.
Food insecurity is largely driven by a food system that is highly controlled by agribusiness. But there's a better way.
(Aachen/Asunción, 11 October 2017) With World Food Day on 16 October approaching, MISEREOR – the German Catholic Bishops’ agency for international development cooperation – is concerned about the burgeoning power of agribusiness and its negative impacts on people and the environment. “Not only is the agribusiness model unsustainable: it also does little to combat hunger in the world on a lasting basis,” says MISEREOR’s Chairman and Director General Pirmin Spiegel. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the number of chronically undernourished people in the world has risen for the first time in a decade and now stands at 815 million.

Cities can also become vibrant spaces for change. Santropol Roulant is an inspiring example of urban agriculture in Montreal Canada. It shows how rooftops and kitchens can become sustainable productive spaces, places of exchange, collective work and solidarity, bringing food to people with loss of mobility or autonomy, and by doing so, breaking social isolation.
