UN decade of family farming puts spotlight on food insecurity 24.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Food & Health The United Nations has declared the years 2019 to 2028 as the UN Decade of Family Farming, citing the need to stem hunger and work toward food security. The official launch of the decade will take place in May. The UN has identified a number of key issues, including public policies, that promote the development of family farms, the protection of biodiversity, forests necessary to supporting family farms, sustainable fisheries and agroecology.

Pamela Palmater As expected, the Assembly of First Nations was first out of the gate offering glowing praise for this Liberal government's federal budget, followed shortly thereafter by the Metis National Council and Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami -- the three male-dominated national Aboriginal organizations. Their organizations have seen substantial increases in funding for their political organizations in recent years. Meanwhile, the Native Women's Association of Canada -- the only political organization representing Indigenous women at the national level -- issued its own press release criticizing the government for failing Indigenous women. They accused the federal government of, once again, ignoring the pressing needs of Indigenous women and in so doing, not only hampering reconciliation but breaching their core human rights. NWAC is especially aggrieved about this lack of funding for Indigenous women and families, given the urgent need to address murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls. The ...
