Agricultural Transition, new publication from More and Better

Agricultural Transition – a different logic is the new publication released by the More and Better Network in the occasion of the Rio+20 Conference. 
A transition of agriculture is needed, from the agro-industrial and other forms of not sustainable agriculture into agro-ecology and other forms of viable food production. A transition is needed that takes into account what farming is and who the farmers are. Rather than perpetuating the idea of the poor small farmer, it is time to understand family farmers, also called peasants, for what they are: solid professionals with wide skills, rooted in time and space, with the ability to produce value at local level and wealth at global level. Viable forms of farming exist and are evolving  in different parts of the world and many transitions are  proving  successful. Twelve steps are proposed in the book. together with their supportive policies, to accompany and trigger transitions into a viable food future.
