Participatory Guarantee System case study report

In 2017, after several years of partnership between IFAD and Slow Food on themes related to food security, indigenous peoples and youth, IFAD approved a large grant project, called “Empowering Indigenous Youth and their Communities to Defend and Promote their Food Heritage,” to be implemented by Slow Food over three years.

The project's overall goal is to empower indigenous youth and their communities, and moreover to improve the livelihoods of project participants, by protecting and promoting their food heritage and upholding the sustainability and resilience of their practices.

This publication provides an overview of the Participatory Guarantee Systems, case studies and recommendations.
