Towards a better and community-controlled global food system

About the Initiative

“Towards a better and community controlled global food system,” led by GRAIN and, seeks to ensure that solutions to current global crises – the pandemic, along with climate, hunger, and inequality – involve local and environmentally sustainable food production, trade, and consumption. By bolstering collective strategies with partners across the world, this project aims to build stronger alliances to confront power imbalances and their impacts on local communities. The project is global in scale and addresses trade, financial investments, corporate power, peasant struggles, and food systems.

Why is now the time to act?     

“We think that unless the global food system is reoriented towards local and environmentally-sustainable production, trade and consumption, we risk losing access to safe and healthy food for all.

What is your vision of change for the global economy with this initiative?

“We believe in strengthening local food economies so that they contribute to a more sustainable food production model and ensure access to food for all.”

How do you plan to leverage RVF support?

We think that the RVF provides a great opportunity to connect with like-minded groups and build common narratives so that we can work together towards a fairer global economy for the people and the planet.
