Upcoming event to discuss paths for agroecological transitions
The “Policies for Agroecology” event is just around the corner!
On 15 July, this webinar will bring together over 16 speakers from countries around the world including India, Brazil, France and Senegal. Together, these diverse experts will explore how policy shifts can enable agroecological transitions.
Global leaders are increasingly aware of the necessity of transitioning to more healthy food systems that work with nature and not against it. For example, during the launch of the Agroecology Transformative Partnership Platform (TPP) on 3 June, His Excellency, President of Sri Lanka, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, announced his nation’s resolute plan to ban the use of artificial fertilizers and agrochemicals — a decision made to safeguard human health and the environment. Many other countries have put in place similarly conducive policies. Examining these policies, their efficiency and their potential for cross-implementation in diverse contexts is central to the missions of the TPP, which aims to address key knowledge gaps and accelerate the shift to resilient landscapes and livelihoods.
By examining concrete country case studies along with current scientific evidence, the event on 15 July will highlight opportunities and challenges involved in putting policies in place that are condusive to agroecological transitions, building more sustainable food systems over the next decade. As part of the discussion, the presenters will release a draft of a new collaborative paper, "Agroecologically-conducive policies: A review of recent advances and remaining challenges” (read the executive summary here). Its objective is to help set research, policy and investment priorities for actors at all levels.
Please join the conversation and follow the two panel discussions, as well as the audience Q&A, to consider key knowledge and implementation gaps in the policy landscape.
On behalf of the Agroecology TPP, we hope you will join us for these exciting conversations about the future of our food systems. It’s time to draw the blueprints for a world-wide agroecological transition!
