Agroecology plays an important role in contributing to the eradication of hunger and extreme poverty, and as a means to facilitate the transition to more productive, sustainable and inclusive food systems. Creating a greater awareness of agroecology and its advantages is an important step to help policy-makers, farmers and researchers to apply this approach to achieve a world without hunger.

The database provides a starting point to organize the existing knowledge on agroecology, collecting articles, videos, case studies, books and other important material in one place. The objective is to support policy-makers, farmers, researchers and other relevant stakeholders through knowledge exchange and knowledge transfer. The database is a ‘living process’ that is constantly being updated.

This study examines the impacts of a set of agroecological interventions for a typical semiarid African country on the achievement of all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The policy analysis utilises the Threshold21-iSDG model, developed by the Millennium Institute (MI), which integrates the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development into one framework....

Our challenge is to seize this opportunitywhile pushing back against the tendency to strip agroecology of its...
