An analysis of diverse options for marketing products from agroecology The purpose of this study is to explore whether and how products from agroecological production systems are being valued in markets. The study is based on a meta-analysis of 12 case studies (Benin, the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Kazakhstan, Mozambique, Namibia, Uganda), mainly from developing and emerging countries and one developed country. The publication provides a unique approach to understanding how markets are constructed for agroecological products, while at the same time supporting small-scale actors in their existing initiatives for producing and marketing their products from agroecology, in order to contribute to more sustainable food systems.
