Breaking away from industrial food and farming systems: Seven case studies of agroecological transition

The case studies follow on from IPES-Food’s 2016 report, From Uniformity to Diversity, which identified the vicious cycles locking industrial food and farming systems in place, despite their severe impacts on human health, economic and social well-being, biodiversity, and climate change.

The case studies provide concrete examples of how people are rethinking and redesigning food systems around agroecological principles. The studies show that it is possible for communities, regions and whole countries to transition towards agroecological food systems.
