Agroecology for food security and against climate change in Peru
This study evaluates the contribution of agroecology to food security, resilience and mitigation of climate change in family farming, in the Mariño basin (Peru). We use the three principles of Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) as an analytical framework. We carry out surveys and measurements in the field, evaluating three principles, 10 criteria and 12 indicators. We found that the application ofagroecological practices improves food self-sufficiency and family income and reduces antagonisms or increases synergies between productivity and adaptation or mitigation. This suggests that agroecology can help achieve simultaneously the often-conflicting goals of Climate Smart Agriculture.
