Declaration from Social Movements/NGOs/CSOs
Parallel Forum to the World Food Summit on Food Security
“Food sovereignty entails transforming the current food system to ensure that those who
produce food have equitable access to, and control over,land water, seeds, fisheries and
agricultural biodiversity. All people have a right and responsibility to participate in deciding how
food is produced and distributed. Governments must respect, protect and fulfil the right to
food as the right to adequate, available, accessible, culturally acceptable and nutritious food.”
