The author is part of the Alternative Management third year specialization program in HEC Paris

1.2 billion people are still suffering from hunger in the world while the productivity of our agricultural system could easily feed the planet. In this report, Olivier De Schutter, reveals the failure of our productivist model and advocates for a reform of our food systems, based on guaranteeing the right to food at all level. There exist diverse ways out of our current model – focusing on agro-ecologic practices, reshaping consumption habits in rich countries, supporting small farmers in developing countries; the author underlines the essential role of International Governance to implement them. This report is calls for a better collaboration between States, which is a key condition for the food sovereignty of States
