Welcome to PHM thematic circle on Nutrition and Food Sovereignty! RESOURCES AND ARTICLES
Nutrition and Food Sovereignty has historically been a very strong area for PHM, but with the loss of some activists in the space, PHM is working to re-energize the work.
The vision is the creation of an equitable and fair food system based on the inalienable people’s right to food and adequate nutrition; politicization of food and nutrition issues, i.e., increasing the political as opposed to technical communications drive on these issues; broad awareness and activism about the negative links between food and financial systems including about the undue corporate influence and flaws of current PPP and multi-stakeholder solutions; and successful resistance to the technical and individualized vision of nutrition by correcting misinformation fed to the public on how to make the food system more equitable.
Short-term goals for Nutrition and Food Sovereignty
•Increased capacities of PHM cadres in food and nutrition work, including active use of mass media and social media to engage beyond PHM.
•PHM activities linked and joint actions developed with other organisations active in the food and nutrition area.
•PHM contributes to convergence and strengthening of broader struggles and provides inputs in its areas of expertise.
•Increased understanding of the political economy of food and nutrition among activists broadly.
