Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. Food and Agriculture Organization in Mongolia has introduced the ‘Agroecology’ concept into the agriculture sector of Mongolia through ‘Sustainable Resilient Ecosystem and Agriculture Management in Mongolia (STREAM)’ project.

The STREAM project is co-financed by the European Union, the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, and co-implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH and the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations. Within the scope of the project, ‘The 10 Elements of Agroecology’ book by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has been translated into Mongolian and published. On September 7, a sample of the publication has been donated to the library of Mongolian State University of Life Sciences.

Agroecology is an integrated approach that simultaneously applies ecological and social concepts and principles to the design and management of food and agricultural systems. It seeks to optimize the interactions between plants, animals, humans and the environment while taking into consideration the social aspects that need to be addressed for a sustainable and fair food system.
