The capacity of the global food system to support a rising world population while preserving healthy ecosystems is the subject of much debate. Agroecology places a strong emphasis on human and social values, such as dignity, equity, inclusion and justice all contributing to the improved livelihoods dimension of the SDGs. The current book “Agroecology, Sustainable and Secure Food Systems” highlights practices that promote resilient agricultural practices, nurture sustainable food production systems, and empower small-scale food producers that help strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change and help maintain ecosystems.
