Agroecology is considered a guiding path for sustainable food and agriculture. It has entered the discourse of international and UN institutions  and is recognized worldwide as an alternative approach to reduce massive deforestation, water scarcity, biodiversity loss, soil depletion and high levels of greenhouse gas emissions.

The Food and Agriculture Organization defines agroecology as an integrated approach that simultaneously applies ecological and social concepts and principles to the design and management of food and agricultural systems. It seeks to optimize the interactions between plants, animals, humans and the environment while taking into consideration the social aspects that need to be addressed for a sustainable and fair food system.
