Food Security and Climate Change : Towards climate resilient agriculture and food systems – ACT Alliance EU position paper March 2017

food secuirty and climate change

This policy paper sets out the ACT Alliance EU position on what we believe are the best solutions to build climate resilient agriculture systems and meet the right to food for all in developed and developing countries. This position is based on our comparative analysis of the currently in vogue ‘climate-smart agriculture’ framework (CSA) versus the alternative frameworks of food sovereignty and agroecology.
