Agroecosystem Health, Agroecosystem Resilience, and Food Security

Topics: Food and Agriculture, Healthcare and Public Health,

This resource outlines the connections between an agroecosystem's ability to meet long-term human needs, the capacity of said system to adapt to unpredictability, and the constant maintenance of sufficient food for everyone. It describes the current framework being used for study at the Agroecosystems Management Program at The Ohio State University as the basis for its evaluation of current agroecosystem health and its role in food resilience. It suggests that agroecosystems further diversify production and focus more on managing this diversity in all realms, particularly cultural and social diversity which can sustain such necessary biological diversity.
