Changing the future of food and farming

Agroecology Symposium: Rome

Event Date : September 18, 2014

to 19 September 2014

International Symposium on Agroecology for Food Security and Nutrition

FAO will host an International Symposium on Agroecology for Food Security and Nutrition from 18th to 19th September to explore recent scientific research and knowledge and promote open dialogue while showcasing existing experiences and programs on Agroecology. The event brings together international experts in the field of Agroecology and within the new FAO Strategic Framework and Strategic Objective 2 to “Increase and improve provision of Goods and Services from Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries in a sustainable manner”.

The Symposium will:

  • develop an action plan for a follow up process in Africa and Asia including potential activities in the context of the FAO Strategic Framework;
  • provide a forum for taking stock of the current state of science and practices of Agroecology, as well as for initiatives underway around the world and thus contribute to the development of an international framework for research on Agroecology, with consideration of economic, social and environmental aspects in developed and developing countries;
  • produce scientific proceedings and other information material for web sharing (e.g. agroecological practices and video interviews).
