The fifth episode of the GHW6 podcast series features Charlotte Dreger from FIAN International,, Magdalena Ackermann from the Society for Internationmal Development (SID), and Isabel Álvarez Vispo, Co-president of Urgenci, an international grassroot network of all forms of regional and Local Solidarity-based Partnerships for Agroecology. The chapter they contributed for GHW6 explores the structural flaws of the global food system, which pollutes, consolidates control in a few oligopolies, and ravages the land needed for production, while failing to meet the world’s need for healthy and nutritious food. The dominant agro-industrial model is contrasted with agroecological alternatives that have persisted despite the ongoing corporatization of agriculture. Considerable evidence demonstrates agroecology’s capacity to meet both human food needs and planetary sustainability.
