This AgroecologyNow! is one of a series of civil society briefings and presents an analysis of the current dynamics, opportunities and challenges of strengthening the commitment to agroecology of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). It is especially useful for actors in civil society who are promoting agroecology as an alternative paradigm for food and farming.
This work on Agroecology and the FAO is supported by the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience of Coventry University (CAWR) and the Agroecology Fund.
This brief was published as a part of the Reclaiming Diversity and Citizenship Series hosted by the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience at Coventry University and edited by Michel Pimbert. The series seeks to encourage debate outside mainstream policy and conceptual frameworks on the future of food, farming, land use and human well-being.
This booklet was developed in collaboration with Cultivate!, an international collective that catalyses the transition to healthy food and farming rooted in agroecology.
