- Type: Report/Publication, Global Publication
- Focal Areas: Biodiversity, Climate Change Mitigation, Land Degradation, Community-Based Adaption
- Partnerships: COMDEKS
This guide provides conceptual and methodological elements for developing and promoting agroecological innovations within country strategies to address agroecosystem resilience in specific production landscapes. It is intended to serve as the basis for the implementation of the Innovative Agroecology component of the GEF Small Grants Programme in its 6th Operational phase, and to provide guidance for the agroecosystem outcome of the COMDEKS landscape approach.The guidance note explains basic agroecological concepts, principles and its application in the design and management of biodiverse and resilient farming systems. Building on the COMDEKS landscape approach, the guide strengthens its agroecosystem component to more effectively build the social, economic and ecological resilience of production landscapes.
