This webinar event will mark the launch of The Politics of Knowledge: Understanding the Evidence for Agroecology, Regenerative Approaches, and Indigenous Foodwaysa new compendium tackling the dominant questions about evidence that are holding back food systems transformation. Authors unpack the narratives and legacies that unpin these questions and explore the many ways funders, researchers, and policymakers can take transformative action.

Bringing together diverse speakers and an audience of funders, policymakers, as well as researchers and advocates, the event will both challenge attendees’ existing ideas and assumptions about evidence and decision making, whilst offering a space for rich dialogue and engagement about the future of food.
