The Global AgroEcology Alliance is committed to employing multidisciplinary experiences and a global perspective to use agroecology principles to improve the environmental, social and economic sustainability of agriculture and agrifood supply chains worldwide.
Agroecology applies ecological concepts and principles to the design and management of sustainable agroecosystems and provides a framework to assess the complexity of agroecosystems (Miguel Altieri).
Agriculture is one of the main links between a human group and the landscape in which it lives and which it exploits. Through agriculture every environment has taught its inhabitants a certain way of life. The teacher of a culture is its environment, and agriculture is its classroom. (Pierre de Shclippe, 1956)
