The book Transition to AgroEcology, for a food secure world was published early October 2016. It deals with the transition ithat is going on, specificaly in agriculture and foodsystems. The transition is unavoidable and necessary to have the world feed itself sustainably. NOTE: Not 'us' feeding the world.
The book is divided into 3 parts, which you can also read free of charge on issuu.com/jellekeforagroecology.
1. Transition to Agroecology, why necessary? It is about ' to be or not to be' for the world as a whole. It also gives some insights in what agroecology is and how good soil health management contributes to good food.
2.. Twenty six examples of best practices in closed loop farming, conservation agriculture, farming with nature, greening the deserts and sustainable value chains, show us how we can make the change. They represent the pioneers and frontrunners that we can easily follow, to together reach the Tipping Point..
3. The third part deals with transition, how it works and how to support it; what you can do as investor, politician, farmer, consumer. researcher.
