    “The climate urgency: setting sail for a new paradigm”

    Written by CIDSE
    CIDSE affirms that this transformation can only be achieved through a paradigm shift. We need a different system as a whole.

    This requires new narratives, a different cultural approach – putting sufficiency at its heart – and transforming our political and economic systems. CIDSE’s arguments and vision for a new paradigm are based on values such as integral ecology, justice, and good governance, as also defined by Catholic Social Teaching and in the Papal Encyclical Laudato Si’. Equity, Common But Differentiated Responsibilities, as well as communities’ involvement and participation in decision-making processes are some of the principles that must lie at the heart of the change needed.

    Transition to Agro-Ecology For a Food Secure World by Jelleke de Nooy van Tol

    Our global agricultural and food system is broken and needs to transition to one that is more sustainable and beneficial to the world’s population.

    This seems hard in the face of the linked challenges of climate change, natural resource depletion, and worldwide economic and social upheaval.

    At the same time, farmer-led social movements are growing, and there is increasing recognition that agroecology and food sovereignty are key solutions for both nutritious food security and climate change adaptation.

    NEW ! The english version of “Better and Different ! Transforming Food Systems through Agroecology “

    The focus of this brochure : We are sceptical of agroindustrial corporations and, instead, call for agriculture based on peasant farming systems. Our approach defends diversity against monoculture and gives local markets priority over the global market. We argue against the oil and chemicals dependency of today’s agriculture and advocate the use of worms, insects and animals. Agroecological approaches not only mimic nature; they are also better for people – as diverse workers, self-employed producers, and market participants and buyers of processed goods. At its best, agroecology reveals what Old Latin always knew: that a secret connection exists between humus and humanum.

    German version : Mit Agrarökologie die Ernährungswende gestalten

    Bei der Agrarökologie geht es nicht nur um eine Landwirtschaft, mit der der Einsatz von Pestiziden und Düngemitteln verringert, Pflanzenreste recycelt und biologische Prozesse für den Anbau von Lebensmitteln nutzbar gemacht werden. Die Agrarökologie stellt eine bestimmte Sichtweise auf unser Verhältnis zur Natur dar…
