July 2020 | Call to integrate agroecological principles for the benefit of people and planet
GAN members make a joint call to incorporate agroecological production principles for the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), aiming to combine multi-stakeholder efforts for protecting biodiversity for the benefit of the people and the planet.
In a correspondence article released this summer in Nature Ecology and Evolution, authors propose three “2030 Action Targets” to reach biodiversity recovery and secure people's livelihoods through agroecology: 1) reduce the threats to biodiversity, 2) meeting people’s needs through sustainable use and benefit sharing, and 3) tools and solutions for implementation and mainstreaming.
In a final remark, authors conclude that integrating agroecological principles will help to make a more robust GBF in favor of nature and people’s needs and provide tools and solutions to reach 2050 vision of “living in harmony with nature”.
