Transforming our food system: the movement for food sovereignty

October 2012

WDM’s campaign to curb speculation on food tackles one aspect of a broken food system. We’re also helping to build a movement for a just global food system, inspired by activists in the global south.

The global food system is in crisis. Globally we are now producing more food than ever before. But while 1.5 billion people are overweight, 870 million people are affected by chronic hunger. Small-scale farmers are suffering from prices falling below their costs of production due to unfair trade regimes, corporate concentration and the dismantling of state support.
