Agroecology has become a territory in dispute.
While mainstream institutions and corporations for years have marginalized and ridiculed agroecology, today they are trying to capture it.
FAO has launched a new online Agroecology Knowledge Hub at: http://www.fao.org/agroecology/en/. The website is aimed at maintaining and promoting information and updates on Agroecology, as well as providing a space to share experiences of FAO and our partners in Agroecology. Ultimately, the goal is to strengthen our worldwide network.

Field trip objectives

In September 2014 the International symposium on agroecology for food security and nutrition was held in FAO HQ, Rome. This has been followed in 2015 by three regional meetings in Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia and the Pacific.
