Agribusiness, Family Farmers and the Future of Food | IATP

Climate change has highlighted the precarious nature of global food systems, and the 2020 pandemic has only pushed those systems closer to the edge. Leading U.N. agencies have recognized that “business as usual” in agriculture and food policies is no longer an option, opening new paths for progress toward agroecology and other climate-resilient sustainable food systems. Longtime IATP collaborator Timothy A. Wise has joined IATP as a senior advisor to explore these issues, based on his widely acclaimed 2019 book, Eating Tomorrow: Agribusiness, Family Farmers, and the Battle for the Future of Food. As family farmers and consumers advocate for just, resilient and healthy farms and food, from Iowa to India, Mexico to Mozambique, they face the concentrated power of agribusiness firms defending their right to conduct business, as usual.
