FAO’s ‘Save and Grow’ highlights the value of ecological approaches to food production – using land, water, biodiversity and nutrients efficiently and in ways that are regenerative, minimizing negative impacts.

The spirit of FAO’s Save and Grow and new calls for agroecological approaches move agricultural development out of a focus on singular focal areas – e.g., improved seed, pest control, water management – to solutions that integrate all components of the farming system.
