Thinking about the diversity of transition trajectories

In this chapter, we propose elements to situate innovative approaches in an agro-ecological transition framework.


Still confidential in Europe in the early 2000s, agroecology is now presented as a credible alternative.

The growth of the agroecological movement raises questions about its nature. Does it contribute to a radical break with intensive conventional models, or does it constitute a range of new technical proposals that would allow the current system to evolve from within?

In this book entitled Coexistence et confrontation des modèles agricoles et alimentaires : Un nouveau paradigme du développement territorial (Coexistence and confrontation of agricultural and food models: A new paradigm of territorial development), we propose elements to situate innovative approaches within a framework of agroecological transition.
