Building long-term climate resilience by strengthening local food systems, and promoting land stewardship are common objectives across the members of our network. The Covid-19 crisis has hammered home the importance of being able to produce food locally, in order to sustain our communities and reduce their reliance on imports and global supply chains. Now more than ever we need to support our farmers, fishermen and other producers. Connecting them with consumers and highlighting the benefits of local produce has become even more important, to help our islands’s businesses weather the economic problems created by global lockdowns. Together, we are asking our communities to: DREAM GLOBAL, EAT LOCAL.
