19mar13:0014:30National Agroecology Strategies: Lighthouses for food system transformation

Event Details

This event, co-organised by the FAO, Biovision, the Agroecology Coalition and the Food Policy Forum for Change, discusses how to bring agroecology to scale through national strategies aiming at supporting the agroecological transition of food systems. These strategies have the potential to harness opportunities of a sustainable development of agri-food systems, by upscaling agroecological production practices, developing markets, value chains and consumer demand that can accelerate transition. Get inspired by learnings from Eastern and Southern Africa summarised in an outcome brief presented during the event and followed by an insightful discussion with policy makers and shapers from the region, among others.
