Land & Food Policies

To achieve sustainable systemic changes in our food system we need strong policies that support agroecological methods, that protect land from unsustainable use and ensure tenure rights for peasant farmers around the world. Food policies are a tool that helps to ensure that all people have access to safe, affordable, and healthy food. These policies can have a local, national, territorial or even international scope. In our courses we explore these areas of policy making and aim to build skills around engaging in advocacy activities at different levels.
