We also want to build the foundation for a healthy future for people and also the land which has so much more potential to provide. Food sovereignty, rather than food security, means that there is a shift in focus from food as a commodity to food as a public and community good with an important role in strengthening communities, ecosystems and economies. Food sovereignty emphasizes that people must have a say in how their food is produced and where it comes from as it relates to both access and the environmental context that will affect future generations.
