Over twenty-five years, GRAIN has worked with social movements and organizations around the world to defend local food systems and cultures from the advance of industrial agriculture. Our work has also involved connecting this analysis to larger issues affecting the planet, linking peoples’ struggles situated within the food system to those happening in other areas. Climate change is one important example of this. The Great Climate Robbery explains how the industrial food system is a major driver of climate change and how food sovereignty is critical to any lasting and just solution. With governments, particularly those from the main polluting countries, abdicating their responsibility to deal with the problem, it has become critical for people to take action into their own hands. Changing the food system is perhaps the most important and effective place to start. This book shows you how.


GRAIN is an international non-profit organization that works to support small farmers and social movements in their struggles for community-controlled and biodiversity-based food systems.
