During an event on agroecology, Mr. Rodríguez praised the need to achieve agricultural extension with an increasingly massive participation of farmers to produce by using such practices and sustainability in times of scarcity.

On the other hand, the Representative of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Cuba Marcelo Resende considered the new economic context and agroecology in Cuba have three fundamental backbones.

The first one is agroecology development within the framework of the economic model updating, in an development scenario to conduct productions in more autonomous ways.

The second one, agroecology within the framework of present local development, a strategy for all Cuba’s legal instruments.

We cannot talk about agroecology or food sovereignty without development. It is a new challenge, granting more autonomy to local powers.
