Can Agroecology provide a triple-win strategy for meeting the pressing challenges of food security, environmental degradation and climate change?
Developing effective and sustainable ways forward is of high-priority, but there is no one size fits all solution. Agroecology advocates claim to offer a holistic approach which realizes key principles through context-specific design of strategies and techniques.
“Agroecology continues to grow, both in science and in policies. It is an approach that will help to address the challenge of ending hunger and malnutrition in all its forms, in the context of the climate change adaptation needed” says FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva.
This event will allow the participants to have a closer look at Agroecology, an emerging set of practices that seek to apply ecological concepts and principles to the design and management of sustainable food systems. The seminar will bring together development actors from the Swedish government, multilateral organizations, civil society and scientific community.
Moderator: Fredrik Moberg, Albaeco/Stockholm Resilience Centre

There is a growing need to expand knowledge among different stakeholders about the need for a transition of the agriculture sector to a biodiversity and ecosystem services approach, based on local knowledge, creativity and initiative and combined with cross-learning over networks. This expert group has a broad focus on complex systems and aims to deepen swedish policy dialogue with global implications.
