Nutrition as a driver and outcome of agroecology

Nat Food. 2022 Dec;3(12):990-996. doi: 10.1038/s43016-022-00631-7. Epub 2022 Dec 5.


The principles of agroecology do not explicitly state a link with nutrition. Yet, we argue that among them, input reduction, biodiversity, economic diversification, social values and diets, fairness, connectivity and participation are directly linked to nutrition. Nutrition can serve as a critical outcome and driver of agroecological practices and can drive transformative change across the food system.
