The UN Food and Agriculture Organization defines Agroecology as a "holistic and integrated approach that simultaneously applies ecological and social concepts and principles to the design and management of sustainable agriculture and food systems"

Agroecology looks beyond the practicalities to agricultural food production to the environmental, social and economic context of food systems and the people they feed.

"It seeks to optimize the interactions between plants, animals, humans and the environment while also addressing the need for socially equitable food systems within which people can exercise choice over what they eat and how and where it is produced."
