Agroecology in FAO (2nd Symposium)

Schola Campesina is at the FAO 2nd Symposium on Agroecology The public and the speakers agree : Agroecology is addressing many development goals (SDG’s). So what…? Crucial points Put politics…

There are 1.5 billion peasant farmers and food producers in the world (the largest sector in the world) and they are the founding pillars of economic democracy. In fact, thanks to them, food and agriculture is the only sector of the economy that is not dominated by oligopolies. The Internet is in the hands of 10 companies, the world energy market is possibly in the hands of 20, and most economic sectors are experiencing unprecedented concentration. Food and agriculture is the only sector where there are still 1.5 billion food producers, despite the large number of concentration processes currently ongoing. Hence, a rights-based social and economic model builds on a strong sector of food producers, peasant farmers, small-scale fishers and pastoralists, and not on the arrogant force of a few.
