The new publication can be used to better understand how the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) can play a role in supporting an agroecology that challenges the status quo and "can undo the ecologically and socially damaging underpinnings of food and farming policies and systems.”

Agroecology represents an alternative paradigm for food and farming – one that puts people and planet on centre stage and emphasises the priorities of food producers and marginalized peoples around the world. 

The publication is the first of a new series of civil society briefings. It provides strategic advice to civil society groups for influencing global policy-making on food to support agroecology while avoiding co-optation. It is written as a part of the AgroecologyNow! group. This work is supported by the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience of Coventry University (CAWR) and the Agroecology Fund.
