2nd International Symposium on Agroecology

Rome, Italy
From: 03.04.2018 to: 05.04.2018

There is a broad consensus that agroecology can be instrumental in achieving a wide range of policy, environmental and food security targets, from sustainability related goals to the reduction of rural poverty. Building on the 1st International Symposium on Agroecology for Food Security and Nutrition, held in Rome in 2014, and the subsequent regional seminars organized in 2015 and 2016, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) will host the 2nd International Symposium on “Agroecology: Scaling Up agroecology to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” in April 2018.

This second symposium aims at moving agroecology from dialogue to activities at the regional and country level by providing an opportunity for sharing ideas and experiences, while discussing policies and actions that can support agroecology in achieving the SDGs and accompany the decade of Family Farming.

The Symposium will take a multi-stakeholder, multi-sectorial and multi-disciplinary approach. About 400 participants are expected to attend, from policy-makers and governments, agroecology practitioners and civil society representatives, to members from academia and research, the private sector and representatives from the regional meetings.
