The COVID-19 pandemic affected food supply and food sovereignty in Malaysia. For this reason, SAM/Friends of the Earth Malaysia took the initiative assisting fisher communities to develop a new delivery system, “from fisher to consumer”. This way, fisherfolk don’t lose income, and have ensured a cheaper supply of fresh, healthy protein via fish and seafood for local people.

Agroecology for food sovereignty has been a clear response to the systemic crisis deepened by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this series of videos, six Friends of the Earth groups show how agroecological practices have been the fundamental basis to build sustainable solutions with solidarity at the centre.
