The COVID-19 Pandemic and Puerto Rico’s Food Sovereingty

This is my translation of my recent column in Puerto Rico’s El Nuevo Día, published on March 19, 2020. Puerto Rican farmers and fisherfolks, beyond safeguarding our natural and agricultural resources, are key agents in strengthening our food security. Sadly, they have not been taken into account during the emergency we are going through. The COVID-19 pandemic should increase our awareness of our vulnerable island food security, and drive us to actualize actions that have a positive impact on our food system.
