Titre portugais : Políticas públicas que promueven la agroecología y producción orgánica en América Latina

Abstract : This paper deals with public policies and public actions that promote agroecology in Latin America and the Caribbean. In this context, agroecology is considered as an alternative agri-food system to face the social, health and environmental problems caused by the conventional agricultural system. Public policy instruments and an enabling institutional environment are essential to support the development of agroecology. However, the institutionalization of this concept and its integration into public policies represents a very hard challenge in Latin America. In the academic field, few studies have analyzed the processes of construction of policies for agroecology. Results presented here are derived from a regional comparison carried out between 2016 and 2017 by the Public Policies and Rural Development Network in Latin America (www.pp-al.org/en).
