Under: Food Sovereignty and Agroecology, India, Systemic Alternatives

This latest report from Focus is an output from a two day symposium that brought together academics, experts, farmers and peasants’ groups to take stock of the contemporary challenges around agricultural commodity markets in India. The report highlights issues such as public procurement, costs and prices, price volatility, impact of trade treaties on domestic prices, linkages between food, nutrition and agricultural markets, retail trade in agriculture, digitalisation and new reforms in agricultural marketing. The report also explores peasant and worker driven alternative models of market management, including the importance of territorial markets.
