The next few decades will witness a rapidly increasing demand for agricultural products. This growing demand needs to be met largely through intensification (produce more from the same land surface) because there is little scope for an increase in agricultural area. Ecological intensification - the optimization of all provisioning, regulating and supporting ecosystem services in the agricultural production process - has been proposed as a promising solution. This discussion will foster discussion on emerging knowledge from research on ecological intensification. Comments will be included in a final report summary that will be shared with project partners and included in the final project reporting to the European Union in 2017.
CFS has started a process of selection and prioritization of activities for the biennium 2016-2017. Though this online discussion, the CFS Secretariat would like to invite all those interested to provide inputs to this process.
