Building back better and greener with Agroecology

Agroecology is a farming approach that’s inspired by natural ecosystems, combines local and scientific knowledge, and focuses on the interactions between plants, animals, humans and the environment. Given the outsize contributions of conventional agriculture to climate change and biodiversity loss, there’s growing recognition the global food system needs a paradigm shift in order to feed the world without destroying the planet. Agroecological principles are increasingly being considered critical to creating that change.
