Indigenous food systems are the foundation of agroecology and yet are very much under threat by mining and other extractive industries, land-grabbing and an increasingly homogenised industrial food system. Indigenous food systems safeguard agrobiodiversity – which is essential for ecosystems and human communities alike. In this session,we will explore how Indigenous Peoples are organising to defend their territories and their food systems. What strategies are they using to preserve and strengthen their food systems, culture and territories to fight food insecurity and climate change? And how are Indigenous peoples working with other allies in the global movement for agroecology? Please join Indigenous leaders from Kenya, Nicaragua and Myanmar for a dynamic discussion.
