Future Policy Award:

Celebrating best policies to scale up agroecology

The 2018 Future Policy Award was dedicated to policies that scale up agroecology, contribute to the protection of life and livelihoods of small-scale food producers, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement climate resilient agricultural practices. The winners demonstrate that with adequate policies the transition towards sustainable agriculture and food systems can be achieved, a transition that ensures healthy food for all, that overcomes social and economic inequalities and protects our environment, climate and biodiversity. The festive Award Ceremony was held on 15th October 2018, during World Food Week 2018 at FAO Headquarters in Rome, Italy.
