Research study on developing a food charter for the Western Cape
The Sustainability Institute performed a scoping and feasibility study for the Centre of Excellence for Food Security under the aegis of the Policy Programme. The study explored how a food charter process might be initiated but also established a precedent for such an undertaking and evaluated whether there is demand for this, and by whom it might be driven. The outcome of the study was a report compiled by the lead researcher. The task of the report was to explore key assumptions about what the notion of a food charter means, why it might be deserving of attention, what different ideas are out there, both in the national and local context and in the international literature about them, and how these ideas affect how they should be approached.
