We are seeking researchers on Food Sovereignty

With the aim to strengthen the resilience of North African countries through knowledge production for civil society actors and help to align agricultural policies accordingly in the future, North African Network for Food Sovereignty and Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, are seeking to contract researchers to conduct studies in the field of agriculture and food sovereignty in Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia.

The studies aim to analyze the impact of the war on access to food in mentioned countries, and provide previews of how the food and agriculture system should look like to ensure the right to food to everyone and the resilience of the agricultural system facing food crises. How is it possible and what kind of steps and strategies would be required to improve food sovereignty in those countries?

Taking into consideration different actors involved in the supply chain (farmers, consumers, private sector, official institutions, i.e. trade offices, ministries, etc.) the studies aim at analyzing the impacts on farmers (the supply chain disturbance, the agri inputs price increases, etc.) the macroeconomic impact (i.e. balance of food management, inflation, etc.) and the households’ purchasing power impact as well.

The studies intend to use and to implement a specific questionnaire for farmers, and to conduct interviews with different stakeholders to complete the qualitative analysis.

In the light of the above analysis, recommendations will be made to tackle those impacts in the short and the long term.
