Tanya M. Kerssen "is a correspondent of the Center for the Study of the Americas (CENSA) in Bolivia, and a Masters candidate at the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of California, Berkeley." [1]

"Tanya will work with Unidad Academica Campesina de Carmen Pampa in Bolvia to examine the evolution of the new concept of Food Sovereignty, which includes not only access of food, but access to land and control over productive resources necessary for sustained food security. Bolivia’s poverty rate is the highest in South America at 63%, a national figure than masks an even higher rural poverty rate of 82%. The goal is to promote self-sufficiency and stability of food production and consumption." [2]
