The ‘Ten Years for Agroecology in Europe‘ report models a future where farming in Europe can respond to climate change, phase out pesticides and maintain vital biodiversity, whilst providing a sufficient and healthy diet for a growing population.
‘Ten Years For Agroecology in Europe’ finds that a wholesale transition to agroecology would:
• feed the European population healthily
• maintain export capacity
• reduce Europe’s global food footprint
• result in a 40% reduction in agricultural greenhouse gas emissions
• help to restore biodiversity and to protect natural resources
