What are, or should be, the main characteristics of agroecological innovations ? (sentences or key words) : community centered, improving resilience to climate change, allow for biodiversity reproduction
Why are these characteristics important for agroecological transitions to sustainable food systems ? : community dimension is important for sustainability of any agroecological innovation; climate change is impacting on natural resources at different levels and agroecological approaches are best placed to deal with adaptation and resilience; Biodiversity erosion is also one of the major issues, and this will in turn make natural ecosystems more vulnerable. for this reason any agroecological innovation should be aimed at improving biodiversity
