Agroecology & global nutrition

This page is still “under construction”. The concept of agroecology is central to Sufosec’s work and is briefly explained here.

What does agroecology mean?
Agroecology is an approach recommended by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) to achieve a sustainable, fair and healthy food system. The proven approach is based on natural cycles, conserves resources and reduces dependence on external factors such as chemical fertilizers. In addition, the cultivation method strengthens the soil – and thus protects against storms, heavy rain or droughts. The principles of agroecology are multi-layered; they include social, scientific, economic and political aspects.

Agroecological learning journey of the Sufosec Alliance

As part of the 2021-2024 programme, the agroecology learning group of the Sufosec Alliance is organizing an “agroecological learning journey”. This is not a physical trip around the world, but a joint, virtually organized learning process with Sufosec partners in the Global South with the aim of exchanging knowledge and experience on agroecological transformation across countries and continents. The learning journey will take place in three phases with annual online workshops and learning products between 2021 – 2024.
