Last Tuesday (29), the Agroecology in Network (AeR) launched a consultation platform with information on agroecologybringing together about three thousand experiences on the subject in Brazil and Latin America.
According to the website, the platform records “farmers’ experiences, their life stories, memories of projects and organizations, among other information about the pulsating movements of agroecology in different territories and temporalities”.
The construction of the platform began in 2018, in partnership with Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz). It is now possible to access it in three ways: through an interactive map, through the complete listing of the registers and through panoramas and graphic schemes that “enable a broad and complete look at the power of agroecology in Brazil”.

“In addition, the new consultation system makes it possible to search through various filters, being able to view the experiences by identity of the subjects involved, by territorial scope, by the date they were registered on the platform, by themes related to agroecology and much more! Now, the search for information and the possibility of further expanding the collective construction of agroecological knowledge has become much easier, dynamic and complete. on your website.
Agroecology in Network (AeR)
How can the accumulation of agroecological knowledge help other locations in the country and in the world? It was from this questioning that Agroecologia em Rede (AeR) was born, an interactive platform that in April 2021 already recorded more than 3,000 agroecological experiences in Brazil and Latin America.

Over two decades of existence, Agroecology in Network has maintained its essence from the perspective of an ecology of knowledge, that is, from the perspective of a horizontality in the area of knowledge. In addition to the collection of experiences from the countryside and the city, the AeR records public policies conquered by the agroecological movement in the municipalities.
