Declaration of the Forum for Food Sovereignty

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.”
