Our work in the region

  • Working space

    In the region, the IP is represented by the Alianza por la Soberanía Alimentaria de los pueblos de América Latina y el Caribe (Alliance for Food Sovereignty of the Peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean). It brings together 23 regional and continental networks, movements and organizations, and 11 national organizations of peasants, artisanal fishing, family agriculture, rural workers, youth, indigenous peoples, afro-descendants, agroecological movements, human rights and environmentalists.

    The Alianza emerges from a historical process of almost two decades of collective construction, which culminated with its foundation in March 2012 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It consolidated its commitment and the path to follow during its First Assembly on August 5 and 6, 2013 in Bogotá, Colombia.

Regional Consultation of the CSOs

The IPC Regional Process participates in the Steering Committee decided by CSOs, which is responsible to organize independently at the regional level the Regional Consultation of Civil Society Organizations.

These consultations are organized before the FAO Regional Conferences to work on a shared and common declaration to be read during the Conferences.

The CSOs participate as observers to the FAO Regional Conferences. The participants are decided among the different CSOs (IPC and non IPC organizations) present at the Consultation.
