What does an agroecological project or enterprise look like? An online discussion about measuring Agroecology
KurzbeschriebWhat does an enterprise a project, initiative, or enterprise look like that is aligned with the principles or elements of agroecology? How can this be measured? And: Why does it matter? Even though agroecology is key to transform our food systems, these questions are difficult to answer. We start an attempt and present two tools for measuring agroecology: The FAO TAPE and Biovision’s B-ACT/ACT.
The FAO TAPE and Biovision's B-ACT/ACT can be used to evaluate how agroecological initiatives or enterprises are. We present how these tools work and how they complement each other for different applications in administration, NGOs, science, and the business context.
- Keynote by Madeleine Kaufmann (FOAG)
