    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.
