How Agroecology is an Alternative to Avoiding the "Hunger Pandemic" and Climate Change?
Current Journal of Applied Science and Technology,
The crisis plaguing the world has weakened the globalization that has been underway for several decades. Trade, movement of goods and people are affected. Food security is threatened. Consequently, the recourse to a production-consumption policy which underpins the viability of ecosystems and human societies is more imperative than ever. Based on its potential, agroecology is proving to be an alternative since it is in many ways an expression of the population mainly made up of non-executives in society.
- economic resilience
- climate change mitigation
- human-society-environment balance
- food security
