Toward Food Sovereignty: Reclaiming Autonomous Food Systems

The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) has gone above and beyond in crafting this multimedia book that brings together full color photo illustrations and linked video and audio files. The work was finished in 2009, and it "describes the ecological basis of food and agriculture, the social and environmental costs of modern food systems, and the policy reversals needed to democratize food systems." Visitors will note that examples are drawn from all over the world, and it's easy to download the various chapters for offline consultation. The chapter sections include "Local adaptive management of food-producing environments" and "Strengthening civil society." Anyone with an interest in public health, community organizing, and civil society will find a great deal to learn from this publication.
