Ten Years for Agroecology in Europe

04 March 2019

An organically farmed Europe can feed a growing population a healthy diet.

The 'Ten Years for Agroecology in Europe' report models a future where farming in Europe can respond to climate change, phase out pesticides and maintain vital biodiversity, whilst providing a sufficient and healthy diet for a growing population.

Report findings

'Ten Years For Agroecology in Europe' finds that a wholesale transition to agroecology would:

  • feed the European population healthily
  • maintain export capacity
  • reduce Europe’s global food footprint
  • result in a 40% reduction in agricultural greenhouse gas emissions
  • help to restore biodiversity and to protect natural resources

Ten Years for Agroecology in Europe was written by IDDRI, a French, independent policy research institute in collaboration with consultancy firm AScA and a council of researchers. Soil Association has worked with the authors to bring the English translation of this ground-breaking research to the UK.
