Agroecology Knowledge Hub

Webinar: Shifting European Finance towards Food System Transformation on 26 November at 14:00 CET

Biovision FoundationCIDSEIPES-FoodAgroecologyNow! at the Center for Agroecology Water and Resilience (CAWR) of Coventry University, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS)Coalition Contre la FaimDanChurchAid, are presenting a webinar on  “Shifting European Finance towards Food System Transformation”. The event will take place on the 26th of November, from 2 to 4 PM CET.

It is widely recognized that a radical transformation of food and agriculture systems is urgently needed to address converging social, economic, health, and ecological crises. The European Green Deal and the Recovery Plan for Europe are important opportunities to mobilize public finance for sustainability transformations. Agroecology's potential to transform food systems and render them more resilient, sustainable, and inclusive is increasingly recognized and backed by a growing body of scientific evidence. However, research shows that only a marginal proportion of public funding is dedicated to agroecology.

The webinar will present recent findings from several studies on the contribution of European bilateral and multilateral funding flows to agriculture and food systems, focusing on the support for agroecology. An interactive panel discussion will follow this to explore existing opportunities and challenges for the scaling-up and -out of agroecology through financial support.
