UN Report: Eco-Friendly Farming Can Double Food Production Within 10 Years

“Today’s scientific evidence demonstrates that agro-ecological methods outperform the use of chemical fertilizers in boosting food production where the hungry live – especially in unfavorable environments,” reports Olivier De Schutter, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food.

The recent UN report “Agro-ecology and the right to food” states that small-scale farmers can double food production within ten years by switching to ecological farming methods. “To feed 9 billion people in 2050, we urgently need to adopt the most efficient farming techniques available,” says De Schutter.
