Did you know that small-scale peasant farmers produce 70% of the world's food? Our Partner JIBAL.org and their researchers have been engaging in important conversations around the debate about who really feeds the world at the national and international levels. Check out their latest publication on “Agroecology in Lebanon” to find out more about how agroecology- an alternative food system vision– is being used in Lebanon as a tool to build a more equitable food system.

Agroecology, from Past to Future is a documentary film published by JIBAL that traces practices of agroecology through their historical progression in Lebanon, in corporation with Heinrich Böll Middle East.
