‘’How far are we in the agroecological transition? The contribution of the Tool for Agroecology Performance Evaluation (TAPE)’’, on November 22, 2022, from 14:30 to 16:00 CET

FAO is organizing the webinar “How far are we in the agroecological transition? The contribution of the Tool for Agroecology Performance Evaluation (TAPE)” to update partners and stakeholders on the Tool for Agroecology Performance Evaluation (TAPE) developments and results. The event is scheduled to take place on 22 November 2022 afternoon (14.30 – 16.00).

While there is increasing evidence on the positive impacts of agroecology, data and results remain un-harmonized across disciplines because of heterogeneous methods and data as well as differing scales, locations, and timeframes. FAO with the help of multiple partners has developed a global analytical framework for the multidimensional assessment of the performance of agroecology: the Tool for Agroecology Performance Evaluation (TAPE). The global implementation of TAPE respond to the need to generate evidence to evaluate the contribution of agroecology and other approaches to the transformation of sustainable agriculture and food systems. TAPE includes a set of indicators and a supporting database to assess the multi-dimensional performance of agroecology. 

Objectives

  • Provide an overview of TAPE: the tool; goals; frameworks; database and development process;
  • Inform on the pilot assessments carried-out in over 30 countries and discuss lessons learned;
  • Illustrate the initial results on the characterization of agroecological transitions and the multidimensional performances of production systems available from the database;
  • Inform on the next steps in the global TAPE development. 

The seminar will be translated in 3 languages: English, Spanish and French.
