The proposed side event on “Agro ecological farming can feed the world: Ecologically and socially sustainable agriculture in practice” will demonstrate how agro ecological farming respects the limits of the planet’s ecosystem, integrates traditional knowledge from local communities, reduces waste, and can serve as a means to advance rural communities towards food and technological sovereignty.
