“Food sovereignty and agroecology are at the heart of true solutions to the climate crisis and cannot be ignored.
We are deeply critical of transnational corporations using their market power and political clout to position their technologies and markets as the “solution” to the climate crisis. We know that peasants and Indigenous Peoples already feed more than 70 percent of the world’s population using only a quarter of the agricultural resources and 10 percent of agriculture’s fossil energy. We know that with the right support, food sovereignty and agroecology can overall reduce carbon emissions by half within a few decades. Every day that we take care of the soil, avoid and reduce agrotoxins, lower food miles, avoid expensive and risky technologies and other “false solutions,” and fight to give land back to peasants and Indigenous peoples, we are part of the true solution to the climate crisis. Globalize the struggle! Globalize hope!”
