Civil Society says NO to “Climate Smart Agriculture”

PeA_Civil_society_CSAAn international statement signed by over 250 organizations and movements from around the world expresses deep concerns about the growing influence and agenda of so-called “Climate-Smart Agriculture” (CSA) and the Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture (GACSA). In the face of the climate crisis, we need a radical transformation of our food systems away from an industrial model and its false solutions, and toward food sovereignty, local food systems, and comprehensive agrarian reform in order to achieve the full realization of the human right to adequate food and nutrition. The over 250 organizations and movements that endorse the statement urge decision-makers at country and UN levels to reject the dangerous rhetoric of Climate-Smart Agriculture.
