Agro-ecology: a way for farming systems in the global South to adapt to climate change

Multiple

A book on the agro-ecological transition within farming systems in the global South, written by some 130 scientists from CIRAD, the AFD and their partners, is due out on 3 January, published by Editions Quae. The book's conclusions, which were recently presented exclusively to the press, are unequivocal: farming systems in the global South absolutely must adapt to climate, population, social and environmental change, and agro-ecology would ba a part of the solution, for all types of agriculture. Agriculture could use the principles of agro-ecology to adapt and become more resilient while reducing its impact on climate. This is one of many conclusions drawn by a book on the agro-ecological transition within farming systems in the global South, to be published by Editions Quae on 3 January 2019.
