The overall objective of GRAIN's programme is to deepen public understanding of the forces shaping the global and local food systems and their impact on farming and food security, and to support social movements and civil society organisations in advancing towards food sovereignty. 

We are best known for our strategic information work and incisive analysis of global trends in the food system. But we also actively support and link social movements around the world that are building food sovereignty and creating more diverse food and farming systems. GRAIN’s programme work is currently organised around four interconnected themes:
  • Corporations, power and the global food system
  • Land grabbing and land rights
  • People’s control over seeds
  • Food sovereignty to fight the climate crisis
