Introduction to the global governance of food and agriculture
Schola Campesina has realised the e-learning training course “Introduction to the global governance of food and agriculture from a food sovereignty perspective” .
This e-learning training has been realized thanks to the commitment of all speakers to share their knowledge with our community. Only the [voluntary] sharing of knowledge and the dialogue amongst the diverse kind of knowledge shared here [food producers, NGO’s, academic,…] made possible the realization of this training course. Thank you to all of them.
Purpose of the training
This online training gives an overview of the global spaces of governance related to food and agriculture. It gives a general insight on the progressive entering of Civil Society Organizations (CSO) within these crucial spaces of governance (Module II). The Module III focuses on the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) where social movements are organizing a huge advocacy work through the Civil Society Mechanism (CSM), supported by the International Planning Committee for Food Sovereignty (IPC). This course also gives a broader picture of other spaces (FAO, UN Human Right Council, etc.) where Food sovereignty agenda can be advanced (Module IV), highlighting the work of constituencies (Module V).
Schola Campesina wishes -through the sharing and dialogue of knowledge- to empower food producers organizations members –specifically the youth- and strengthen their capacity to influence and advocate within these spaces, bringing the voice of Agroecology and Food Sovereignty movements in the global agenda. We aim also at improving the use of global outputs (policy recommendations, guidelines, etc.) at national and local levels for the benefit of social movements.
This training course has been realized thanks to the kind support of Agroecology Fund
Schola Campesina would like to thank Elene Shatberashvili for sharing her knowledge and contibuting to make this training course possible.
