Dear Colleagues,

Here is a report of our workshop at the 14th Congress of the International Society on Ethnobiology in Bhutan: Sovereignty Workshop Report 2016. It is detailed and it: (1) provides an approach to designing a workshop on the subject, (2) a way of undertaking food sovereignty research, and a (3) means to contribute to communities. You can see that we have garnered an international team of practitioners and researchers. At the 15th Congress in Uganda we will move forward and invite you to participate.

Look forward to seeing all of you soon.

Be well and thrive
