Countries bet on agroecology for sustaining natural resources and rural livelihoods

Farmers are facing growing pressure to provide an increasing amount of healthy and nutritious food at low environmental cost. Combining traditional farming methods with modern systems is on-trend as well.

Agroecology can contribute greatly to both while also ensuring consideration of the social aspects of sustainable food systems. However, the concept is neither widely known nor widespread in the Western Balkans, the Caucasus and Central Asia.
To this end, FAO has started a dialogue in the region and organized a two-day event for the Western Balkans and the Caucasus to raise awareness on the multiple benefits of agroecology.

Starting today, the event provides a forum for discussion and knowledge exchange. The first event of its kind, it builds on active participation before and during the workshop to gather information from participants and feed it into the development of a regional work plan on agroecology.
