Agroecology Europe is very pleased to announce the release of a new study mapping agroecology initiatives in Hungary conducted by its Hungarian team!

The report “Mapping Agroecology in Hungary” is the result of a 10-month-long mapping project in 2019-2020, commissioned by Agroecology Europe, carried out by Védegylet Egyesület with the help of the Environmental Social Science Research Group (ESSRG), Hungary.

The goal of this research was to gain a general overview of the present state of agroecology in Hungary, through attaining an understanding of the historical and political contexts in which these developed and currently function, but also to map agroecology related initiatives, research and their networks.

This study finds that Hungary, considering a transformation towards agroecology, is well situated with its history and present richness of actors all over the country. Still, any transformation will only happen if the actors cooperate formally, and therefore can advocate for agroecological transition in a coordinated manner.
