Lunchtime Conference External Cooperation Infopoint

Today’s dominant model of farming has succeeded in supplying large volumes of foods to global markets, but is generating significant negative outcomes on multiple fronts, while alternative food systems, based around fundamentally different agricultural models, can deliver on economic, environmental, social, cultural, as well as nutrition and health fronts
The presentation is based on the recent IPES-Food report “From Uniformity to Diversity: a paradigm shift from industrial agriculture to diversified agroecological systems”.
