Performance of agroecological approaches in LMICs

This rapid evidence review from CCAFS Low-Emissions Development assesses the performance of agroecological approaches in low- and middle- income countries. Based on over 10,000 studies, it finds that agroecological practices such as farm diversification, agroforestry and organic agriculture can help low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in both mitigating and adapting to climate change through their food systems.

The evidence review covers climate change adaptation and mitigation, adaptive capacity (such as engaging with local knowledge to tailor technologies to local contexts), and agroecological transitions for large-scale impacts.
