The peasant road towards an alternative development model: The Managua Declaration

The Nicaraguan National Union of Farmers and Ranchers (UNAG) in 1992, alongside local and international delegates, put together a document that was later called the Managua Declaration. The author highlights the general content of the declaration and the initial process proposed to gain international Cupertino for the agrarian model of development put forward in the document. The document endeavours to foster worldwide networks of farmers working to develop practical alternatives to neo-liberalism, from the perspective of both established farmers and the landless rural population.
