A 10+13 agroecology approach for the EU

European Environmental Bureau

This policy paper from the European Environmental Bureau (a network of environmental citizens' organisations) sets out a proposal for mainstreaming agroecology within the policies that govern food systems in the European Union. The paper defines agroecology as a paradigm shift that encompasses approaches such as organic and regenerative farming.

The paper proposes that EU Member States should structure their agroecology policies around the FAO’s 10 Elements and 13 Principles of agroecology. The 10 Elements are illustrated below.
