South Asian Consultation on “Food Justice in a Resource Constrained South Asia”

SAWTEE and Oxfam organized a two-day South Asian Consultation on “Food Justice in a Resource Constrained South Asia” on 26-27 September 2011 in Lalitpur, Nepal.

More than 40 stakeholders from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka participated in the regional consultation. The objectives of the consultations were: to critically debate key drivers of food insecurity and inequality in South Asia; explore national and regional solutions that help address current and future challenges in ensuring sustainable agricultural production, and equity in terms of access and sustainable management of land, and water; and identify regional options and mechanisms to promote resilience to climate change.

The regional consultation also aimed to contribute to current policy debates while informing South Asian stakeholders of policy options towards building a new agricultural and ecological future in South Asia.

At the event, Oxfam also launched its regional GROW campaign and a report titled “Nourishing South Asia: Grow a Better Future for Regional Food Justice”.
