Vision: CAN's vision is for a global economy where people, healthy food systems and the environment come first.
Mission: CAN's mission is to sustain rural livelihoods and environments by integrating research, education and trade innovations.
CAN uses a agroecologically-based participatory action research (PAR) approach to promote food sovereignty through the following objectives: empower rural communities (especially women, youth and indigenous people) as leaders of food systems change, increase access to productive resources and staple foods, improve food security and nutrition, increase agroecological management practices, and develop alternative market relationships and vibrant local food economies.
