INTRODUCTION TO CANSEA

------------------

Different contexts explain the development and the dissemination of conservation agriculture in South-East Asia and thus consequently the emergence of a sub-regional network for the coordination of Conservation Agriculture activities - CANSEA.

 

The network was established on 29-30 September 2009 in Vientiane, Laos and associating 8 research partners from 7 countries (Australia, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam).

 

The objective of the Network is to optimize the similarities and the complementarities between countries and institutions...

The CANSEA scientific platform is a network of research partners keen to implement agro-ecology and conservation agriculture in Southeast Asia.

From Uniformity to Diversity: A paradigm shift from industrial agriculture to diversified agroecological systems

From Uniformity to Diversity: A paradigm shift from industrial agriculture to diversified agroecological systems

This report explores the potential for a shift to occur from current food systems, characterized by industrial modes of agriculture, to systems based around diversified agroecological farming. It asks what the impacts on food systems would be if diversity, rather than uniformity, were the key imperative. The ecological benefits of such a shift have been widely documented. The key question, and the one asked in this report, is where the trade-offs lie. In other words, could food systems based around diversified agroecological farming succeed where current systems are failing, namely in reconciling concerns such as food security, environmental protection, nutritional adequacy and social equity.

Towards an agroecological transition in Southeast Asia: Cultivating diversity and developing synergies

Towards an agroecological transition in Southeast Asia: Cultivating diversity and developing synergies

The world today is facing many challenges, among which demographic pressure and the natural resources of the earth, we are reaching the limits of. The demographic factor is directly linked with the food security issue since it is imperative that we produce more in order to feed our growing population. To this must be added the evolution of alimentary diet which accompany the progressive improvements we have seen in the lives of the poorest segments of the population. Having reached the outer physical limits of our planet, we can only intensify each farming acre’s productivity so as to preserve the natural areas still left to us, such as forests, while avoiding the non-sustainable development of marginal lands. When we include the stakes related to nutrition and climate change, it is easy to understand the complexity of the challenges facing us. This is particularly true in Southeast Asia due to the immense demographic pressure felt in most countries
