Food Security and Sovereignty

The right to have access to healthy food for all should be a principal goal of any state, and is one of utmost importance to INCLUSION. The world is increasingly more urbanized due to a lack of perceived opportunities in rural areas which makes many abandon their territories daily and seek better opportunities in big cities, leading to the emergence of slums and more food scarcity. Simultaneously, access to healthy food is every time more limited to the world's poorest.

For INCLUSION, it is important to promote projects based on peri-urban agriculture such as community gardens, family gardens, and school gardens. The purpose of these projects is to provide access to healthy food and generate some income for the people.

Even in developed nations, malnutrition remains an issue. INCLUSION's proposal is to present projects in South Florida to promote this type of agriculture that help improve diet and income.
