WhyHunger is proud to release its first agroecology publication, “Agroecology: Putting Food Sovereignty into Action.”
Agroecology is an agricultural method based on the traditional
knowledge of those who cultivate the land and a way of life. We believe
its practice is critical to addressing global hunger and increasing
communities’ access to basic resources such as land, water and seeds.
is not a technical guide to agroecology, rather it shares the knowledge
and perspectives of 10 social movement leaders that are working to
“scale up” agroecology around the world. It also highlights the social,
political, cultural, nutritional and spiritual meanings of agroecology
from within communities that have been negatively impacted by the
commodification of food.
