Innovation and Sustainability in Family Farming

The world food system is at a crossroads
and requires a deep transformation at multiple levels due to increasing
demographic pressure, climate change, growing competition for natural
resources, the loss of biodiversity and malnutrition problems. Faced with this
situation, the World Food Safety Council has indicated the importance of
agroecology and other innovative approaches, which occupy an increasingly prominent
position in discussions on sustainable development considering the need to link
environmental sustainability and social innovation, production and consumption,
global concerns and local dynamics.
