The goal of the WFAL 2016 had been to organise a world forum in 2016 to address the major issues linked to unequal access to land, natural resources (see The Call). Finally, the global assembly took place in Valencia, Spain (31st March, 1-2 April 2016) with more than  400 participants from 70 countries from today at the Global Forum on Access to Land and Natural Resources.

Ten years after the World Forum on Agrarian Reforms (Valencia, Spain, 2004) and the International Conference on Agrarian Reform and Rural Development (Porto Alegre, Brazil, 2006) the trends seemed unchanged if not worse. 

Making a precise assessment of the situation had been imperative. An evaluation of the short and long terms consequences had been essential. It couldn’t must ignore none of the great economical, social, political and environmental prejudices due to the ongoing processes. It was the condition to identify responses able to solve the problems.

Implementing such an analysis had been possible according to the signatories of the WFAL 2016 Call, if citizens from every continent and the organizations in charge of representing or guaranteeing their interets could effectively debate into a structured and contradictory process: farmer and other civil society organisations, governmental organisations, indepedant or public research institutes.

The WFAL 2016 Call aimed at creating the conditions necessary for such a debate, with the guarantee that each one’s point of view and analysis had been taken into consideration by all, towards the invention of the most constructive proposals.

Le marché international des produits agricoles – celui où s’échangent les produits entre pays – ne concerne que 15 % de la production et de la consommation mondiale de produits agricoles.

Les prix des produits de base pratiqués sur ce marché sont très bas car les exploitations qui l’approvisionnent sont hautement mécanisées et capables de produire à très bas coûts.

The dominant agricultural model, based on the abusive and destructive use of natural resources, leads us into a health, social, ecological, climatic, economic and cultural impasse.

In the North as in the South a regulatory arsenal limits the rights of peasants to exchange and reproduce their seeds. The privatization of seeds, the first link in the food chain, and the growing control over them by multinational companies seeking to increase their monopoly by imposing hybrid seeds and GMOs poses a threat to global sovereignty and food security.

Les processus d’accaparement et de concentration des terres font peser sur l’agriculture familiale paysanne et les sociétés dans leur ensemble de lourdes menaces. La destruction de l’agriculture paysanne est à imputer aux politiques internationales et nationales soutenant activement le développement d’une agriculture capitaliste à salariés.
