Manifesto on Forgotten Foods a Catalyst for Action Plan
A global manifesto for collective actions on forgotten foods was released in July. The Manifesto is part of a collective action program on forgotten or indigenous foods, and it calls for concrete actions. The Alliance of Bioversity and CIAT is the convener for the next steps, which will include the finalization of an action plan and the creation of a community of practice for forgotten foods. The manifesto addresses six points, including calling for transformative action to turn forgotten foods into respected, valued, and supported ingredients of healthy diets, sustainable livelihoods, and resilient seed and food systems. A draft copy of the document is available online and will be updated.
