Agroecology is a science, a practice and a movement. It is based on scientific and traditional knowledge. It is a science that bridges ecological and socio-economic aspects. It can work at various levels farm, community, national, regional, and so on. Biological processes are enhanced using agroecological principles and these principles can be shared via farmer-to-farmer exchanges.
Agroecology needs to be built from the bottom up, especially through social movements in rural areas. There is a need to create alliances between rural and urban communities. Agroecology is a pillar of the food sovereignty framework which promotes the provi- sion of land, water, seeds and other productive resources to small farmers and landless people, along with economic opportunities.
encompasses the relationship between agricultural production systems and ecological processes. It includes all the techniques that allow agricultural practices to be more respectful of the environment.
