    The interface between agroecology and territorial approaches for food systems transformation

    Agroecology offers values and principles that underpin sustainable solutions to challenges around food insecurity, social inequality, climate change and threats to biodiversity and natural resources. Territorial approaches meanwhile facilitate the multi-stakeholder collaboration at scale that is needed for effective implementation of sustainable development solutions within the framework of the UN’s 2030 Agenda. Several shared principles and practices create synergies between the two models that can support the advancement of both. This paper presents five main findings and key recommendations of a dialogue that explored how integrating agroecology and territorial approaches might support and accelerate a systemic transformation at scale in food systems. The findings and recommendations aim to support the Agroecology Coalition’s work to promote agroecology beyond its community. They reflect dialogue participants’ diverse backgrounds, opinions, and areas of expertise, and are not intended to convey the opinions of organizing institutions.

    Beyond the farm: Exploring the synergies between agroecology and conservation communities
    2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper presents five main messages and key recommendations of a dialogue that explored opportunities and limitations of agroecology to address conservation needs beyond the farm. The messages hereby presented look beyond classical on-farm conservation approaches (e.g. conservation of local crop varieties and crop wild relatives) and focus instead on the contributions of agroecology to mitigate species decline and ecosystem degradation at the landscape scale. This although important is less explicitly recognized within existing narratives of agroecology or conservation communities. The paper identifies concrete pathways to increase synergies between agroecology and biodiversity conservation communities for food system transformation through policy reform, knowledge creation, investment and change of practices.

    Catalysing dialogue and cooperation to scale up agroecology: Outcomes of the FAO regional seminars on agroecology. Summary 2018

    Agroecology has been gaining interest in recent years among governments, research and civil society organisations worldwide and many actors present it as a strategic pathway to transition to sustainable food and agriculture systems for achieving food security and nutrition. Following the 1st International Symposium on Agroecology for Food Security and Nutrition, held in Rome in 2014, FAO organized a series of regional multi-stakeholder seminars in Latin America and the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the Pacific, China, Europe and Central Asia, and the Near East and North Africa from 2015 to 2017. These seminars provided many opportunities for exchange and debate and revealed that while the scientific framework for agroecology dates back to the last century, it is a living concept that can be interpreted differently by different actors. The participants’ testimonies showed not only the wealth of existing initiatives but also their high expectations about supporting agroecological transitions on a larger scale. This document is a summary of the global report Catalysing dialogue and cooperation to scale up agroecology: outcome of the FAO regional seminars on agroecology which presents the main lessons learned from the regional seminars and drawing from this, proposes a framework for action to support the development of agroecology in the coming years. This is a direct contribution to the 2 nd International Symposium on Agroecology: Scaling up Agroecology to achieve the SDGs.
