Food & Water Watch works with organizations in Latin America to promote a healthy food system and safe, affordable water for all.
Latin America is the arena for some of the most dramatic struggles over who will control our food and water supply.
Because of the enormous wealth of biodiversity, forests, agricultural land, and water, corporations from all over the world have come to the region hoping to cash in with projects in the food, fisheries, agriculture and water sectors. Brazil, in particular, has become a major producer of raw materials for animal feed (soybeans) and biofuels (sugarcane and soybean oil) for export to countries in the North.
