Nyéléni 2007- Forum for Food Sovereignty

In view of the failure of neo-liberal policies and the deteriorating living conditions of both rural and urban societies, a growing number of political decision makers and social movements are taking an interest in food sovereignty. An group composed of Friends of the Earth International, Via Campesina, the World March of Women, ROPPA, WFF and WFFP has come together to organise Nyéléni 20071, the World Forum for Food Sovereignty.

600 delegates from the five continents, representing all sectors of society with an interest in agricultural and food issues, will meet in Mali in February 2007.

This gathering will be an opportunity to reaffirm the right to food sovereignty and to clarify its economic, social, ecological and political implications. It will also strive to create an international process whose aim will be to achieve recognition of the right to food sovereignty.

The organisers made a deliberate decision to hold this meeting in Africa, where agriculture plays a central role, and where numerous rural and urban families suffer from hunger despite the abundance of natural resources.

Mali was a natural choice. It is a democratic country where civil society organisations, be they trade unions or other types of association, enjoy freedom of action and expression. Mali is one of the first countries in the world to have made food sovereignty a policy priority, with its new agricultural framework law.

The autonomy to decide on how to work, how to guarantee our livelihood, how to enjoy life, love, how to have children or not, how to live without violence and build our future. (...)
