Feeding the world or letting it feed itself

"Moreover, we agree on promoting solutions to help the world feed itself, to enable communities to produce their own food instead of solutions of those who aim at feeding it. And this is because we defend the rights of the peoples to define and control their food and food production systems, local, national, ecological, fair and sovereign. In fact, that is food sovereignty: the ability for people to choose what and how to produce, and how to trade it. "
