food system transformation
BIOGI supports a paradigm shift from industrial agriculture to a diverse agroecology system. This involves the transformation of a mono culture mindset into a diverse food system thinking,[IPES- FOOD.20167.From uniformity to diversity]
Out comes of diverse systems includes the following four elements;
Food culture and connections to their landscape environments are sevely disrupted and destroyed.
With climatic crisis at hand and its severe negative impacts on livelihoods on developing countries, especially in Africa; agricultural transformation and food systems change is urgently required .
A more responsive connection to culturally appropriate food that conserves local ecology and creates wealth locally while supporting the resilience and rights of poor communities to managing their land sustainably is needed.
