Peasant Agroecology for Food Sovereignty and Mother Earth, experiences of La Via Campesina

Rec_Agroecologia_LVCThe collective efforts of various organizations from Africa, America, Europe and Asia have resulted in the study booklet: “Peasant Agroecology for Food Sovereignty and Mother Earth, experiences of La Via Campesina”. From their distinct territories, 10 articles share experiences in agroecology training, organizing, production and marketing of healthy foods. This set of experiences represents a dynamic range of practices and knowledge, both for training within the movement and as a mechanism for additional knowledge exchange and rural-city dialogue. La Via Campesina proposes Peasant Agroecology as a way of production for rural communities, where Food Sovereignty constitutes a principle of life.
