ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: HOW TO ENSURE SMALL-SCALE FARMERS RIGHT TO FOOD
13 november 2019 @ 08:30 - 18 november 2019 @ 10:30Gratis
The roundtable discussion will focus on the right to food for all and explore how to achieve a sustainable agriculture in the world today and in the future. The discussion will include examples from countries in Sub Saharan Africa, Latin America and Europe.
One of Afrikagruppernas focus areas is in supporting small-scale female farmers and their right to exchange, save and share seeds. As many as 70 percent of the worlds food is produced by small-scale farmers who often grow sustainably. Small-scale farmers protect across 50,000-60,000 seed varieties at no cost or greater climate impact contributing to a more resilient agriculture. Still 821 million people do not have enough food or suffer from malnutrition in the world today. The UN Climate Panel, IPCC, stated in August 2019 that it is impossible to keep global temperature increases within safe levels without one major change in the worlds food production and land use. How can we work to achieve a sustainable agriculture and a more secure right to food, local seeds and land especially with climate change effects?
Welcome to join us as we explore the agricultural system today and what alternative are in place that can contribute to a sustainable agriculture. The conversation is held in English
