The main objective is to identify key strategies to be improved in Agroecosystem so that agricultural production can be increased without compromising the soil health, farmers labor and marketing of agri products.
The objective of this coalition for action is to create a broad-based multi-stakeholder coalition to develop, model and implement cohesive and integrated measures that promote consumption and production of affordable, healthy diets within safe planetary boundaries from nature-positive agriculture with all animal-source foods deriving from systems providing a good quality of life for farmed animals.
