AFRICAN PERSPECTIVES ON AGROECOLOGY

We are thrilled to announce the release of the long-awaited book titled African Perspectives on Agroecology: Why Farmer-Led Seed and Knowledge Systems Matter, edited by Bio-economy Research Chair Professor Rachel Wynberg. Uniquely, this open access book offers a contribution that is enriched by the collaborative, creative and critical voices of 33 inspiring farmers, activists, scientists, scholars, and policymakers whose viewpoints combine to articulate a shared dynamic vision of a world where agriculture is productive, diverse, and sustainable; where different ways of seeing and knowing are respected; and where seed and food systems are in the hands of farmers and local communities.

 

The book can be downloaded here: https://practicalactionpublishing.com/book/2698/african-perspectives-on-agroecology where the hard copy is also available for purchase.
