Title of initiativeAgroecology for food system transformation: International cooperation, advocacy, awareness-raising
Biovision Foundation for Ecological Development, various partners
In line with the objectives of the “Coalition for the transformation of food systems through agroecology”, Biovision Foundation will invest in the coming three years (2022-2024) approx. USD 35 Million to advance the application of agroecology as a means for food systems transformation in Sub-Sahara Africa, in Switzerland, and globally.

It will further support local actors in strengthening their capacities and help inclusive agroecological market systems to evolve.
In Switzerland, Biovision will contribute to raising awareness among the Swiss population, facilitate dialogues between concerned stakeholder groups and advocate for a conducive policy framework.
At the global level, Biovision will advocate for coherently aligning policies with agroecological principles and facilitate the scaling of investments in agroecological enterprises and initiatives.
Boost Nature-Based Solutions of Production
Faced with a matter of years to protect, sustainably manage, and restore our landscapes that support food systems, we urgently need to make the right decisions supported by transparent, accessible, accurate, and credible data.
Taking forward the work of the solution cluster, a global coalition of allies will be developed to support nature-positive innovation linked to the Global Action Agenda for Innovation in Agriculture that will be launched at COP26, engaging numerous organisations and thousands of stakeholders.
