2015, a year of movement-building

From Bajo Aguan to West Bengal, passing through Tunis and Essakane, FIAN International’s Annual Report 2015 conducts a succinct review of all its work throughout the year.

For three decades now, FIAN International has been advocating for the realization of the human right to food and nutrition. A truly international organization of national sections, coordinations and individual members united by a common purpose, FIAN has gradually become an influential force in the battle for recognizing all people’s human right to a decent life. With a bottom-up approach at its core, FIAN has been supporting local struggles and getting people’s voices heard for their right to daily bread.

2015 concluded the 30th year of this journey. As Sofia Monsalve, FIAN International’s Secretary General points out, last year was about “movement-building”. 2015 was marked by increasing solidarity, cooperation and collaboration with civil society groups and social movements to advance the realization of the right to food. “There was a growing sentiment of convergence. At a time when people’s human rights are under attack by the national and international policies, activities of corporations, discrimination, patriarchy, gender-based violence and conflicts, such an approach is vital.”

From Bajo Aguan to West Bengal, passing through Tunis and Essakane, FIAN International’s Annual Report 2015 conducts a succinct review of all its work throughout the year.
