This paper develops a Decision Support System (DSS), for achieving Food Sovereignty Plans at different territorial levels. The DSS calculates the land requirement for producing the food needs of a local community, the land suitability for the involved crops, and the percentage of the food self-sufficiency achievable. The paper reports two case studies at different scales (Italy and Umbria region) for highlighting the strengths and the weaknesses of the DSS. Finally, the paper outlines the use of the developed DSS for enhancing participatory processes to achieve a National Food Sovereignty Plan.

The DSS calculates the land requirement for producing the food needs of a local community, the land suitability for the involved crops, and the percentage of the food self-sufficiency achievable. The paper reports two case studies at different scales (Italy and Umbria region) for highlighting the strengths and the weaknesses of the DSS. Finally, the paper outlines the use of the developed DSS for enhancing participatory processes to achieve a National Food Sovereignty Plan.
