What are, or should be, the main characteristics of agroecological innovations ? (sentences or key words) : Agroecological innovations should :
be adaptive to rural areas, promote women's empowerment, cater to the poorest of poor
Why are these characteristics important for agroecological transitions to sustainable food systems ? : Majority of agricultural activities in developing countries are carried out by rural and tribal women. Rural and tribal women are the primary users and caretakers of forests and agricultural lands, hence know better about its sustainability. If these women are trained in agroecological innovations, the impacts could be maximised and scaled up over time efficiently.
