Ecological Intensification

Ecological knowledge and science can be used to increase the resilience, productivity and profitability of farms. This campaign aims to reverse the prevailing paradigm of food scarcity and empower the world's 3 billion small food producers with knowledge to affordably increase the performance of their farms and livelihoods based on ecological functions and biodiversity.

The campaign maps the diversity of these ecologically intensified organic farming systems to provide policy makers with a comprehensive overview of the power of nature to nourish the world.
