Souveraineté alimentaire

Définitions générales

Food sovereignty is a food system in which the people who produce, distribute, and consume food also control the mechanisms and policies of food production and distribution. This stands in contrast to the present corporate food regime, in which corporations and market institutions control the global food system. Food sovereignty emphasises local food economies, culturally appropriate, and sustainable food availability. This system centers indigenous peoples impacted by issues of food production and distribution, due to changing climates and disrupted foodways which impact the ability of indigenous populations to access traditional food sources, and contribute to higher rates of certain diseases. These needs have been addressed in recent years by several international organizations, including the United Nations, with several countries adopting food sovereignty policies into law. Critics of food sovereignty activism believe that the system is founded on inaccurate baseline assumptions; disregards the origins of the targeted problems; and is plagued by a lack of consensus for proposed solutions.
