Agroecology means talking about resilient agriculture, that is, a system that meets both food needs and short- and long-term development needs without destabilizing the earth system.
It is an approach that seeks adaptive changes and transformations necessary to meet changing environmental conditions and human needs.
Agroecology challenges the relatively fixed configuration of our systems of production and consumption, proposing an alternative that takes into utmost consideration the inherent characteristics of places.
An agroecological system aims at the interaction and productivity of the agricultural system as a whole, not that of the individual culture; resulting in the reduction of negative externalities.
An agroecological transaction is needed to redesign resilient and biodiverse agricultural systems that preserve natural resources.
