The People's Coalition on Food Sovereignty is "a growing network of various grassroots groups of small food producers particularly of peasant-farmer organizations and their support NGOs, working towards a People's Convention on Food Sovereignty."[1]

The organization's goals are:

  • "To develop and promote the People's Food Sovereignty as the alternative platform against neoliberal globalization on food and agriculture policies.
  • "To develop and popularise the proposals of the People's Convention on Food Sovereignty as a way to and disseminate the concept of food sovereignty, as a guiding principle in food and agriculture, and as a unifying call for mass movements across the globe.
  • "To coordinate regional and global activities on Food Sovereignty including mobilisation, research and policy advocacy.
  • "To exchange information, skills and experiences in achieving Food Sovereignty in the local, national and regional levels.
  • "To promote the acceptance of a globally binding International Convention on Food Sovereignty at the national and international level."[2]
