Nyéléni Europe and Central Asia Food Sovereignty Movement

Food sovereignty is a policy framework advocated by farmers, peasants, pastoralists, fisherfolk, Indigenous Peoples, women, rural youth, environmental organisations and other supportive constituencies. It was launched in 1996 by the international peasants' movement La Via Campesina during the FAO World Food Summit in Rome. Since then, food sovereignty has played an increasingly important role in the debate on agriculture and alternatives to neoliberal policies. The food sovereignty movement is continuously growing also in Europe and Central Asia region.  Do you want to join us?
