2nd International Symposium on Agroecology: Scaling-up Agroecology to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

3 – 5 April, FAO Headquarters, Rome

It will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences, while discussing policies and actions that support agroecology in achieving the SDGs and link with the decade of Family Farming.

About 400 participants are expected to attend, from policymakers and governments, agroecology practitioners and civil society representatives, to members from academia and research, the private sector and representatives from the regional meetings.
