OUR COMMON WEALTH OF FOOD – Nourish Scotland conference 16th October 2014

CEMVO Scotland was pleased to be supporting this event. 

The event - How can we play our part to make food fair for all?

Can we use a Common Wealth approach to food? There is enough food for everyone, but people go hungry in Scotland as well as in poorer Commonwealth countries. With increasing inequality, food poverty and diet-related diseases are escalating.  Meanwhile, family farmers across the world are being squeezed off the land, and the food system is harming biodiversity and driving climate change, which in turn makes farming dangerously unpredictable. At this year’s conference we shared experiences and ideas with farmers and policymakers from India, Malawi and the Caribbean countries. What would it take for everyone to eat well without messing up the planet? And how should Scotland play its part?
