About the Book

Numerous challenges such as persistent hunger and malnutrition, climate change and environmental degradation, and ever-tightening constraints on resources mean that no less than a transformation of our agricultural and food systems is needed. A paradigm shift towards agroecology – a science, movement and practice that applies ecological principles to the design and management of agroecosystems – is increasingly gaining recognition as one that could enable substantially better food production, while providing a set of farmer-friendly, regenerative solutions that can realize more resilient agricultural practices and provide people with access to sufficient and healthy food under changing climate conditions.
