Agroecology – A promising alternative to the biodiversity crisis in agriculture and industrial food systems

By working with – not against – nature, and diversifying our farms, landscapes, fishing waters and the foods we eat, agroecology supports biodiversity, contributes to the majority of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and promotes resilience.
