Food sovereignty is a crucial concept in the fight against climate change and the global food system. It is the idea that people have the right to determine their own food systems, including the right to produce, access, and consume healthy and culturally appropriate food. Women farmers, in many parts of the world, are at the forefront of this movement, using innovative agroecological practices to grow food without harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, women farmers are leading the way in the adoption of agroecological practices. These practices include using natural pest control methods, crop rotation, and intercropping, which not only help to combat climate change but also improve food security for their communities. By using these methods, women farmers are able to grow food that is healthy, nutritious, and culturally appropriate, while also preserving the environment for future generations.

Sandy McClure, Director of Philanthropic Partnerships at Global Greengrants UK, will be interviewed by Servane Mouazan, social entrepreneur, CEO of Ogunte CIC, and steering committee member at Women in Social Finance, to give an overview and understanding of the situation of these women farmers. Sandy will discuss how food sovereignty is helping these women farmers to combat climate change and the global food system. She will also talk about the challenges that these women farmers face, and the support that is needed to help them succeed.

In conclusion, food sovereignty is a crucial concept in the fight against climate change and the global food system. Women farmers, in many parts of the world, are at the forefront of this movement, using innovative agroecological practices to grow food without harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides. They are leading the way in the adoption of agroecological practices, which not only help to combat climate change but also improve food security for their communities. With the right support, these women farmers can continue to lead the way in the fight against climate change and the global food system.
