Climate change and the agriculture crisis: agroecology as a solution

This report seeks to answer several questions on climate change, its causes, how it will affect people’s lives and environment and the importance of agroecology within this.

It explores how agroecology farms hold immense mitigation and adaptation potential and therefore are better suited to deal with the climate crisis. The report argues that small and marginal farmers must adapt their practices to deal with changing temperatures and more frequent extreme weather events. These adaptations must first and foremost build resilience within the agroecosystem, increasing its ability to continue functioning when faced with unexpected events.
