Abstract: "Since 2001, the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) has been co-ordinating an innovative research programme on Sustaining Local Food Systems, Agricultural Biodiversity and Livelihoods. Throughout this action research programme, the emphasis has been on doing research with, for and by people rather than on people for learning and change. Its ultimate goal is to explore how and under what conditions diverse, localised food systems can be sustained in the twenty-first century. This book describes the way co-inquirers are working together in the drylands of the south Indian state of Andhra Pradesh to produce social and ecological knowledge for sustainability and equity. Their collective and empowering experience is vividly captured in the videos which make up the Affirming Life and Diversity film series included in this book."
