Our new methodological guide to learn about common approaches on conducting socio-economic and ecosystem services analyses for agroecology projects is now also available on adaptationcommunity.net and in FRENCH!
The lack of scientific evidence for the positive economic benefits and ecological impacts of agroecology is a major problem hindering its large-scale implementation. To facilitate better evidence-based decision-making, this publication provides methodological guidance. It is aimed at both project promoters and researchers who produce and select context-appropriate socio-economic analyses and assessments of ecosystem services related to agroecology. In this way, it is intended to support future economic studies carried out in the context of agricultural and rural development programmes.
Our team was commissioned by the EU co-funded Global Programme Soil Protection and Rehabilitation for Food Security (ProSoil), a programme of German development cooperation implemented by GIZ, to develop a methodological guidance for project implementers such as GIZ staff and their partners.
