A Green Deal for implementing agroecological systems: Reforming the Common Agricultural Policy of the European Union

The authors recommended four key measures which will be updated and presented to representatives of the EU institutions on several occasions.

Agroecological and other innovative approaches

This report and its recommendations aim at helping decision-makers, in governments and
international organizations, research institutions, the private sector and civil society organizations,
design and implement concrete transition pathways towards more SFSs at different scales, from local (farm, community, landscape) to national, regional and global levels.

Agroecology & climate change rapid evidence review

The study found that agroecology can play a major role in climate change adaptation and mitigation. However, we still don’t have enough data and evidence on what works, where and why. So, what does the available evidence tell us?

Assessing Agrobiodiversity

The Agrobiodiversity Compendium provides guidelines for the collection and analysis of information about the diversity of crops, livestock, pollinators and harvested wild plants. The methods described have all been used and documented with communities around the world in landscapes with diverse environmental and cultural features. 

Agroecology: What it is and what it has to offer

Agroecology is gaining momentum as a scientific discipline, sustainable farming approach and social movement. There is growing anecdotal and case study evidence of its multiple benefits, from climate resilience to farm productivity. Yet its promotion in public agricultural policies, research and extension is still limited.This paper explores why this is. 

Mediterranean organic production and climate change

These scientific studies carried out in the
Mediterranean climate zone, have provided strong
arguments supporting many advantages of organic
farming in mitigation and adaptation of climate
change in relation to other production systems.

Agroecology and Circular Bioeconomy

Results provided by a panel of experts reveal that some of the vital challenges facing Agroecology in the near future involve its contribution to Climate Action, to increasing biodiversity or to the co-creation of knowledge by researchers and farmers, as well as the application of criteria of Circular Bioeconomy to agro-food production and distribution. 

Agroecology: Principles for the Conversion and Redesign of Farming Systems

Modern agroecosystems require systemic change, but new redesigned farming systems will not emerge from simply implementing a set of practices (rotations, composting, cover cropping, etc.) but rather from the application of already well defined agroecological principles.

Challenges and Action Points to Amplify Agroecology in Europe

An analysis of the major challenges for the
amplification of agroecology in Europe was carried out by 310 stakeholders in a World Café exercise
and 23 sessions and workshops during the Agroecology Europe Forum 2017. In this paper we present and discuss these recommendations for pathways and actions
to develop sustainable agro-food systems in Europe through agroecology.

Agroecology: Ecological Processes in Sustainable Agriculture

It provides the theoretical and conceptual framework for the study and analysis of agroecosystems.

Agroecology: The Science of Sustainable Agriculture

This book incorporates new insights and concepts in the hope of helping guide agricultural students, researchers, and practitioners to a deeper understanding of the ecology of agricultural systems that will open the doors to new management options with the objectives of sustainable agriculture.

Integral to FAO’s Common Vision for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, agroecology is a key part of the global response to this climate of instability,
offering a unique approach to meeting significant increases in our food needs of the future while ensuring no one is left behind.

The Unilever regenerative agriculture principles

Agricultural practices focused on delivering positive outcomes in terms of nourishing the soil, increasing farm biodiversity, improving water quality and climate resilience, capturing carbon, and restoring and regenerating the land.
