Voices and flavours of the earth: Visualising food sovereignty in the Andes
International Institute for Environment and Development, June 2013

This multimedia publication uses video, audio, images and text to describe how indigenous communities are drawing on their knowledge and cosmovisions to rethink the priorities and governance of food and agricultural research in the Andean Altiplano of Bolivia and Peru. In the first chapter “Thinking and acting from the field,” the author Maruja Salas presents the participatory framework created for the Andean farmers to express their ideas. The chapter on “The virtues of participation” features a conceptual framework addressing food sovereignty as a form for amplifying food producers’ voices. Other chapters address: actors; constructing food sovereignty; wisdom networks; biographies and wise men and women; wisdom dialogues; and the power of experience.
