Food and the climate crisis

This issue of Farming Matters addresses the intersection of agroecology, food sovereignty and the climate crisis. Climate change is a political problem that highlights the need for systemic change to the way food is produced, processed and distributed.

From agroecological practices that build resilience, to social movements that resist land grabbing, the articles presented here not only argue for changes to the food system needed to tackle the climate crisis but demonstrate some of the ways to bring about these changes.
