Welcome to the EWG
Ecoagriculture is a landscape approach to natural resources management that seeks to sustain agricultural production, conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services and support local livelihoods.
An 'ecoagricultural landscape' is a mosaic of natural features - such as forests and wetlands - and human uses - such as agriculture and villages - that are managed to meet the three goals of ecoagriculture.
The Ecoagriculture Working Group (EWG) is a forum where the Cornell community can interact to help advance knowledge and understanding about this integrative land use paradigm for managing multifunctionality in rural landscapes.
The EWG has roots in the Department of Natural Resources, and the Cornell International Institute for Food, Agriculture and Development (CIIFAD). It collaborates closely with Ecoagriculture Partners (EP)
