Venezuela & Food sovereignty

The Venezuelan Effort to Build a New Food and Agriculture System

“While many other countries are just beginning to turn their attention to issues of national food security, as necessitated by the most recent global food crisis, the people of Venezuela and their government have been actively tackling these issues for the past decade. They have been working to ensure not only the human right to food, but also the ability of the country to feed itself. The efficacy of these efforts is now being put to the test, as the Venezuelan government strives to buffer its population from a series of global crises, while partnering with neighboring countries to coordinate a regional response. The discussion in this chapter examines the Venezuelan effort to build a new food and agriculture system.

  1. The only thing to do in this case is to congratulate venzuella’s people for being aware of the upcoming food crisis and acting according to it. They changed their system and tried to become selfsufficient by eating their own fish and encouraging local productions such as coacoa prodution. If every country was able to become autonomic at least in the basic concerns such as food production, Wouldn’t the world be a better place?
