Crash Barriers for Post-COVID-19 Food and Agricultural Systems

Many of the world’s current food and agricultural systems are in need of transformation – for people, for the environment and climate, and for our shared future. COVID-19 exposed, even more, that the distribution and commercialization of food is highly concentrated and inequitable. A conversational online event, with a long plenary Q&A that brings together social movements and civil society organizations, and authors of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung publication “Crash Barriers for post-COVID-19 food and agricultural systems”, representing perspectives from Asia (India and Philippines) and the Americas (Argentina, Brazil, and the US).
