Agroecology is increasingly recognized as a path towards sustainable food systems. However, many countries still lack coherent national policy frameworks to adopt it. This session will examine how national agroecological strategies (NAS) can build more sustainable food systems through interventions around production practices, natural resource use and governance, markets, consumption patterns, and research agendas. The session will also showcase the experiences of policymakers from across Africa on the processes undertaken to develop NAS, while nurturing an open discussion among participants on agroecological policy interventions.
