Observatoire de la Souveraineté Alimentaire et de l’Environnement (OSAE)
Prof. Dr. Habib Ayeb
OSAE is an academic based "research hub" whose main goal is to produce and disseminate rigorous academic knowledge about the Tunisian rural socio-economic environment, its challenges, and future horizons. OSAE focuses on the themes of food sovereignty, agricultural and food politics, food, malnutrition and under nutrition, environment, rurality, biodiversity, environmental and social justice.
Complementary to the research are awareness raising activities benefiting a wider public including farmers, civil society, policymakers, and other relevant stakeholders. By disseminating research findings through seminars, conferences, and debate sessions among rural communities, civil society groups, and consumers, OSAE’s main intent is to reorient the debate on the agricultural sector in Tunisia toward the thematic of food sovereignty, including environmental and social rights, and to build up social alliances that can provide pressure at the political level.
