AgroEcology Fund

The AgroEcology Fund is a force of many and diverse voices, mobilizing resources to build power that transforms food systems and fosters the wellbeing of people and the planet. Working with partners across the world, robust, rural and urban communities will offer dignity and livelihoods for food producers in 30 years. Local cuisine will be celebrated, produced by young people gleaning knowledge of agroecology from elders and scientists. Governments and financial institutions will support regenerative and restorative economies and ecosystems, and basic human rights protections. Everyone will have access to healthy, affordable, and diverse foods harvested from fair food systems that are governed locally by producers and consumers and contribute to halting climate change. In 30 years, agroecology will be the model for food systems, while industrial agriculture will be remembered only in history books and museums.
