Moving toward Resilient Food Systems that Protect the Planet

Manon KoningsteinEcoAgriculture Partners

Together we are facing a global crisis that has put farmers and local landscape leaders on the frontlines. The rise and spread of COVID-19 is making the interdependence of people, livestock, wildlife and ecosystems clearer than ever before. It’s highlighting the importance of community health, resilient local food systems and the need for us to manage these systems in a holistic way.  

EcoAgriculture Partners is committed to mending our broken food systems and to restoring health and balance to how we approach food production.  That’s why we’re participating in #GivingTuesdayNow. We need to support farmers and their communities through this emergency and beyond. Will you join us?

A new normal

As the world moves toward a “new normal,” so does EcoAgriculture Partners. We are working to make our new normal a world where resilient food systems support self-sufficient communities in harmony and balance within sustainable landscapes. 

The COVID-19 pandemic will lead to changes in the way the world functions for years to come. We have the chance to ensure that the changes we make today will lead to a more stable world that is better able to withstand future shocks at the local, national and international levels. This will require focusing at a landscape level on food production systems that are resilient and protect watersheds, biodiversity, livelihoods, and human health and wellbeing.  And just like with COVID-19, to do this we will need bold and collective efforts, decisions and efforts from governments, businesses and individuals.
