Agrarian Reform
Defense of territory
Agro-ecology
Local food systems

“World-wide, peasants, pastoralists, fisher-folk and other small-scale food producers
provide some 70% percent of the food consumed by humanity, even though we
probably only hold a quarter of all farm land. In Africa, we women farmers do about
70% of farm work, and we grow about 80% of the food. Peasants, and especially
peasant women, feed today’s world”
