Seed and food sovereignty is a core part of climate change resilience. Food sovereignty is ‘the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and regenerative methods’. Locally grown food provides jobs and livelihoods for local communities. This goes beyond food ‘security’ – it prioritises local and national economies and markets over international trade. Locally grown food provides food jobs and wealth to local economies. Working and growing locally can provide a stable future for future generations.
