Summary report of the high-level workshop convened by IIED-Practical Action on scaling up agroecology to achieve the SDGs
The aim of this workshop was to explore the potential of agroecology to achieve growth, resilience,poverty reduction
and food security with a range of development organisations from civil society, research and government, in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Thirty people from sixteen different organizations attended the workshop. The specific objectives were to develop pragmatic ideas on how to scale up agroecology to millions more smallholder farmers and identify areas of joint work, and partnerships that could take those ideas forward
It is a huge challenge to achieve food security for all in a way that is sustainable environmentally, economically, socially and politically. And there are different views on what dimension of sustainability should have priority when trying to produce 'more with less'.
