International Symposium on Agroecology for Food Security and Nutrition
International Symposium on Agroecology for Food and Nutrition Security 18 - 19 September 2014, Rome

About the Symposium

In line with the trend towards more sustainable food systems, Agroecological practices, research and policies have seen exponential growth in the last decade. At the same time Agroecology has not yet become mainstreamed within the broader context of science and development work. 

It is within this context that FAO is hosting an international, scientific symposium on Agroecology.  The Symposium will seek to capture scientific knowledge and promote open dialogue while bringing together existing experiences and policies on Agroecology.
