Thailand: ‘We Need to Save Our Seeds, Climate, Seasons to Protect Our Communities!’

‘We apply integrated agriculture and agroforestry to grow coffee and other foods such as cherries, peaches and persimmons. Thus, aside from the coffee we sell, we also have food to eat. These production systems allow us to gain twice: we earn an income to support our livelihoods whilst growing our food and preserving a resilient land which ensures long-term food security and the continuity of our income-generating activities.’

Change the food system, not the climate!

Agriculture and the whole food system play a decisive role and must be at the centre of the debate on climate change. Food production is one of the main causes – and victims – of climate change, and could also be­come one of the solutions.

Cambiamento climatico e sistema alimentare

Con questo documento di posizione Slow Food intende presentare la correlazione tra il sistema alimentare e gli attuali cambiamenti climatici e descrivere le vie possibili per affrontare la crisi climatica attraverso le pratiche eco-sostenibili da adottare durante l’intera catena alimentare, “dalla terra al piatto.”
