Since its launch in 2018, the Scaling up Agroecology Initiative seeks to mobilize dialogue, cooperation and investment within and beyond the United Nations (UN) system, to bring agroecology to scale and achieve multiple sustainable development goals through sustainable agriculture and food systems. Different UN Agencies are progressively supporting agroecology across their respective mandates in partnership with governments and key actors across the food system.
Three years into the implementation of the Initiative (2019-2021), this webinar aims at sharing initial achievements, success stories and collective understanding of the enabling environment that takes agroecology forward on the ground, in different contexts and at different levels. The event is jointly organized by the UN advisory mechanism of the initiative, composed by FAO, International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), World Food Programme (WFP), Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and World Health Organization (WHO).
