COPING WITH COVID-19 AND OTHER DISASTERS : An important research focus of this project is to evaluate the advantage of agroecological practice to cope with major disasters caused by pandemics, earthquakes and climate change. In particular, project members suggest that the COVID-19 crisis has created a moment where existing calls for agroecology acquire new relevance. See for example, a recent article by Altieri and Nicholls (2020): Agroecology and the reconstruction of a post-COVID-19 agriculture published in the Journal of Peasant Studies.
