Permalink Experts Urge Shift from Industrial Agriculture to Diversified Agroecological Systems

The International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems has issued a report entitled From Uniformity to Diversity: A paradigm shift from industrial agriculture to diversified agroecological systems. In the report, a group of the world’s foremost experts on food security, agro-ecosystems, and nutrition say that to put global food systems onto sustainable footing, we must diversify agriculture and reorient it around ecological practices. The report identifies obstacles to changing agricultural systems and maps out steps to break current cycles and bring about change. The experts concluded that a fundamental shift toward what they define as diversified agroecological farming can deliver simultaneous benefits for productivity, the environment, and society. Both an executive summary and the full report are available online.
