Farming for Change: Charting a course that works for all introduces the latest research from IDDRI that shows that a transition to agroecology:

  • Can reduce emissions by upwards of 70%.
  • Supports species abundance across and beyond the farmed environment.
  • Keeps food production at the core of land management, growing enough healthy and sustainable food for all.
  • Ensures we do not export production (or externalise environmental impacts) overseas.
  • Provides a broad pathway for resilient and sustainable farm businesses across the UK to take responsibility for food security.
