In Togo, practicing food sovereignty has enabled communities to support themselves and each other during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Friends of the Earth Togo has supported the community of Donomadé to set up beekeeping and agroecological farming for families to be able to consume their own food, sell produce to earn money for basic needs, and share meals with those in need. These crops are grown from environmentally friendly farming practices.
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.
