Treaty Lands, Global Stories is excited to be hosting Moayyad Bsharat of the Union of Agricultural Work Committees for a conversation about Indigenous Food Sovereignty in Palestine. The event will be moderated by Mayyasah Akour.
"The Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) is registered as a non-governmental agricultural organization according to the Palestinian Associations and Non-Governmental Organizations Law No. 1 at the Palestinian Ministry of Interior. It is considered as one of the largest agricultural development institutions in Palestine as it was established in 1986 by a group of agronomists. When established, UAWC depended on volunteers completely and formed agricultural committees in the West Bank and Gaza to set the priorities of farmers and help the Union in implementing its programs and community activities."
