FAO-Website zu Agrarökologie

November 2016: Eine neue Website der UN-Organisation für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft, FAO, bietet Informationen und eine Diskussionsplattform zu Agrarökologie. Die Schwerpunkte sind

  • to highlight and share relevant knowledge on agroecology. As agroecology has been identified as an integration of science, practices and social processes this platform provides updates on current states of knowledge on these three aspects, structured around eleven common elements of agroecology: efficiency, balance, diversity, co-creation of knowledge, recycling, synergies, human and social values, circular economies, cultural and food traditions, land and natural resource governance.
  • a specialized database on different legal frameworks, policies and programmes concerning agroecology in different countries, which is constantly updated.
  • and a database which provides a starting point to organize the existing knowledge on agroecology, collecting articles, videos, case studies, books and other important material in one place. The objective is to support policy-makers, farmers, researchers and other relevant stakeholders through knowledge exchange and knowledge transfer. The database is a ‘living process’ that is constantly being updated like videos on the recentRegional Symposium on Agroecology for Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems in Europe and Central Asia, which took place in Budapest, Hungary, from 23-25 November 2016.
