Innovation and Agroecology: A Path to Sustainability

21 November 2018

Rome, Italy

Are innovation and agroecology capable of working hand in hand? Is the future dependent on integrated solutions to agriculture?

Co-hosted by the International Agri-Food Network and Nigeria, this event explores some of the best examples of innovations to advance the agroecological outcomes in areas the UN calls to include: recycling, resource use efficiency, optimizing inputs, diversification, integration, and soil health.

Speakers will address solutions that apply to farms of all sizes and regions. Then, contribute to a discussion of how to design sustainable farming systems that strengthen the interactions between plants, animals, humans, and the environment for food security and nutrition.
