Issues such as the concern for the deepening of multiple crises crossed by systemic violence throughout the continent; the growing corporate domination of food systems through the capture of political decision-making spaces, social narratives, and the territories themselves, which systemically affect the participation of peoples and life in their territories, were addressed.

In response, this assembly served as a platform to reaffirm the principles and commitments of the peoples' struggle for solidarity, equality with social, political, economic and environmental justice; respect for human dignity and horizontal power relations; autonomy of decision and action; mutual support; revaluation of ancestral knowledge; Good Living and care as the center of the reproduction of life.

In its final Declaration the Assembly ratifies that "Agroecology is the solution to guarantee the Food Sovereignty of our peoples as paradigms that, in addition to promoting a diverse agro-food system that comes from our territories, retake spirituality, cosmovisions, intergenerational work, and full participation of women and youth, popular, peasant and community feminisms."
