Infographic: Soil to Sky - Agroecology vs Industrial Agriculture

25/01/2013

The Christensen Fund shared a great infographic showing the difference between agroecology and industrial agriculture, including farm yields, biodiversity and water systems, human communities and the climate impact of our food system. Agroecological strategies can better feed the world, fight climate change and poverty, and protect soil and water while maintaining healthy, liveable communities and local economies. Industrial agriculture contributes to climate change, malnutrition and ecosystem degradation around the planet. It has not delivered on its promise to feed the world.
