Nyéléni 2007 – World Forum on Food Sovereignty will be held in Mali on 23–27 February 2007. The meeting will bring together 600 delegates from five continents to reaffirm the right to food sovereignty and to begin an international drive to reverse the worldwide decline in local community production of food. The forum has been organised by an alliance of social movements – including Friends of the Earth International, Via Campesina, the World March of Women, the Network of Farmers’ and Producers’ Organisations of West Africa (ROPPA), the World Forum of Fish Harvesters and Fish Workers (WFF) and the World Forum of Fisher Peoples (WFFP) – who took a deliberate decision to hold it in Africa.
