“Cuba is the first country in the world to promote agroecology as a national development strategy. After the fall of the Soviet Union put an end to petroleum and fertilizer subsidies, farmers from the Campesino a Campesino (Farmer to Farmer) Movement of Mesoamerica introduced Cuba to agroecology, the “science of sustainable agriculture.” The Cuban National Small Farmers’ Association (ANAP) adopted and further developed agroecology with enthusiasm. The move pulled Cuban agriculture back from the brink of disaster . . . . goes on, however, conventional agriculture has begun to reassert itself, and the country still struggles to meet domestic food needs. Despite these challenges, Cuba remains the only place in the world where the government supports sustainable agriculture, a unique and inspiring anomaly in today’s global food system.” Food First
