GRUBERG CAZON, Helga. A review of transdisciplinary approaches for the co-creation of food sovereignty. RevActaNova. [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.3, pp. 329-356. ISSN 1683-0789.

Food sovereignty is a complex problem of sustainability, since it requires the active and effective participation of diverse communities of knowledge for the identification and implementation of relevant and sustainable solutions. It is a complex problem that cannot and should not be treated sectorial or unilaterally (e.g. from the academy or from the public sector). Otherwise the proposed solutions would be destined to an imminent failure. Transdisciplinarity is proposed as an approach to successfully deal with complex sustainability problems, since it allows transcending disciplines and sectors. There are few experiences about the co-creation of food sovereignty from a transdisciplinary approach at international and national level. This essay presents a case study in the Municipality of Tiraque about the co-creation of food sovereignty at two scales: municipal and communal level. Although the results are preliminary, there are already lessons from the field. The formation of collaborative and transdisciplinary research teams requires patience and time. Once the teams are formed, interesting dynamics emerge. Preliminary results show the importance of working with young people through agroecological schools and linking them with knowledge transfer networks such as the agroecological committee.

Palabras clave : Food sovereignty; co-creation; agroecology; transdisciplinarity; Bolivia.
