Over the past twenty-five years, GRAIN has worked with social movements and organisations around the world to defend local food systems and cultures from the advance of industrial agriculture. Part of our work has involved documenting the ill effects of this industrial food system, the growing hunger, the destruction of rural people's livelihoods, the loss of biodiversity and cultures, the exploitation of labour and a range of health calamities and analysing the ways through which this system expands, from seed laws to free trade agreements to secretive land deals. But another important part of our work has involved connecting this analysis of the food system to larger issues affecting the planet and linking peoples' struggles situated within the food system to those happening in other areas. Climate change is one important example of this. During the pasts five years, we have pulled together the available data to show how the industrial food system is a major driver of climate change and how food sovereignty is critical to any lasting and just solution. With governments, particularly those from the main polluting countries, abdicating their responsibility to deal with the problem, it has become ever more critical for people to take action into their own hands. Changing the food system is perhaps the most important and effective place to start
