Food & Sustainability

Food & Sustainability

This work aims to promote informed, balanced and thoughtful discussion about what agricultural systems are best suited to different circumstances and needs. We consider what policy space all countries – particularly developing countries – should maintain to ensure agriculture-related policies that support their overall development, food policy, agriculture, environment and social objectives. We seek to ensure that local communities are empowered to work towards resilient, equitable and sustainable food systems.

We explore alternatives to the current multilateral framework governing agriculture trade and investment.

We promote informed and balanced discussion about what - if any - kind of intellectual property protection on seeds would best foster resilient, equitable and sustainable food systems and innovation policies.
