Agroecology and the Transformation of Agri-Food Systems: Transdisciplinary and Participatory Perspectives
Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems has just published a special issue "Agroecology and the Transformation of Agri-Food Systems: Transdisciplinary and Participatory Perspectives." free online access to the entire issue.
This special issue is devoted to defining the focus of agroecology, and pointing out ways that it must lead the way in transforming food systems to sustainability, from the seed and the soil, all the way to the table. Guest editors V. Ernesto Méndez, Christopher Bacon, and Rose Cohen bring together the transdisciplinary perspectives that have helped form our understanding of agroecology, how it promotes change through participatory action in research and education, and why it is important that agroecology lead the way in bringing sustainability to all people and all parts of our global food system.
One of the chapters in this issue is written by Eric Holt-Giménez, Food First's executive director and Miguel Altieri, University of California at Berkeley.
