Title OriginalUnderstanding and improving the sustainability of agro-ecological farming systems in the EU
The objective of the project is to strengthen the sustainability of European farming systems, through improved and practice-validated strategies and incentives for agro-ecological approaches. UNISECO contributes to sustainable food security by identifying and supporting farming systems that enable the production of healthy food while preserving the environment and bringing added value to farm households and the different stakeholders in the value chain. UNISECO will
enhance the understanding of socio-economic and policy drivers and barriers for further development and implementation of agro-ecological approaches in farming systems.
operationalise a socio-ecological systems framework that integrates external settings into a sustainability assessment of farming systems.
provide a methodological toolkit to assess the environmental, economic and social impacts of innovative strategies and incentives for agro-ecological approaches at the farm and territorial levels. The toolkit will be tested in participatory case studies in 15 European countries.
