This workshop will focus on the need to reform our climate, foreign aid, and trade policies to support a transition to innovative approaches to food security built on traditional knowledge and enhanced by scientific innovations. Agroecology, a combination of the sciences of ecology and agronomy, promises an alternative, integrated approach that is garnering the support of local farmers and practitioners around the world. Learn and share ways to build support for agroecology locally, nationally and globally.
