The adoption of agroecological principles in Scottish farming and their contribution towards agricultural sustainability and resilience


Agroecology in Scotland is understood differently by different people and at times contrary to what constitutes agroecology. There is little information, however, about how widely agroecological approaches are adopted and applied in Scotland to improve agricultural sustainability and whether these deliver beneficial outcomes such as improved efficiency, stabilised incomes, and greater resilience to a range of external factors.To address this knowledge gap, a SEFARI-funded fellowship project was conducted with the objective of understanding how the use of agroecological principles can provide enduring benefits for long term land productivity, and the resilience of agricultural businesses in Scotland, including the response to crises such as the Climate Emergency and COVID-19.
