BOOK LAUNCH: Sowing Seeds of Change and Hope

The Asia Pacific Research Network (APRN), in partnership with Andra Pradesh Vyavasaya Vruthidarula Union (APVVU) and Asian Peasant Coalition (APC), will launch the book Sowing Seeds of Change and Hope: Farmers Confronting the Food and Climate Crises on October 15, 2012, 3-4 pm at the People's Sovereignty: Land and Biodiversity at the Jeevan Jyothi, Hyderabad, India.

Amidst the global food crisis, the food producers of Asia Pacific are now reclaiming agroecological farming systems and methodologies through their own organizations and support institutions. These local alternatives are rooted in local contexts and situations and are mindful of sustainable management of community resources.

This book is a compilation of stories and practices of sustainable farming systems from four countries of the region. Other food producers may draw strength and inspiration from these stories, to counter the corporate agenda and to support struggles for a people-centered economy.
