IUCN report explains sustainable agriculture

3 September, 2020

The new IUCN report Approaches to sustainable agriculture aims to shed some light on the abundance of understandings and terminology in the field – the many different approaches, practices, concepts – which can distract from the focus of building a common path forward for sustainable agriculture in the future.

Whether it is agro-ecology, regenerative agriculture, organic farming, nature-inclusive agriculture, ecological intensification or others, all decision makers and stakeholders in the farming and environmental communities need clarity as a very first step. Different approaches to sustainable agriculture exist, and they have a number of important commonalities and challenges, but also that their diversity is a strength in itself.
