Sustainable Agriculture

A sustainable agriculture has become a question of survival for humanity. The agricultural land cannot be expanded further without destroying natural landscapes. Half of the arable land has been degraded mainly through soil erosion, nutrient leaching and salinisation. Feeding a growing world population is currently still accompanied by a sharp rise in the consumption of resources of agriculture and the destruction of the environment.
Against this backdrop, in many countries there is now a strong movement towards sustainable agriculture that is economically and socially useful. It must be geared to preserve fertile soil, clean water, genetic resources and biodiversity for future generations in the different ecosystems. The German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) has created a conceptual framework for the support of sustainable agriculture, and Como Consult was involved in its drafting. This systemic approach can be used specifically in the management cycle from planning through implementation to assessing sustainability.
