Knowledge for better food systems

Foro sobre los sistemas alimentarios sostenibles en Latinoamérica

This is a Forum for the Spanish speaking members of the FCRN about sustainable food systems in Latin America. You can find a summary of the first round of discussions in English here (available in Spanish here).  We hope to be able to launch this second round of discussions later in the autumn 2017.

Anyone speaking Spanish is welcome to comment and can do so either by signing up as members here or - if you are already an FCRN member – by sending us an email ( to gain access. We would encourage you to get in touch with us if you are interested in setting up a forum focusing on another region such as Africa or Asia (or even a sub region). We can assist in setting up, recruiting forum participants and with facilitating/moderating the discussions (as long as they are in English).
Please spread information about the forum through your own networks to people who might be interested - use this online invitation.
