L'agroécologie est une discipline scientifique, un ensemble de pratiques et un mouvement social. En tant que science, elle étudie comment les différentes composantes de l'agroécosystème interagissent. En tant qu'ensemble de pratiques, il recherche des systèmes agricoles durables qui optimisent et stabilisent les rendements. En tant que mouvement social, il poursuit des rôles multifonctionnels pour l'agriculture, promeut la justice sociale, nourrit l'identité et la culture et renforce la viabilité économique des zones rurales. Les agriculteurs familiaux sont les personnes qui détiennent les outils pour pratiquer l'agroécologie. Ils sont les véritables gardiens des connaissances et de la sagesse nécessaires à ce programme. Par conséquent, les agriculteurs familiaux du monde entier sont les éléments clés pour produire de la nourriture de manière agroécologique. ---FAO Agroécologie & Agriculture familiale
