We All Win When Agroecology Is In / Todos ganamos con la agroecología (ECO 6, SB56)

13 Jun 2022

Maybe ECO is a bit obsessed with the term ‘agroecology’. Maybe – but rightly so. Agroecology is a term that should appear in a Koronivia decision because it is a working model already implemented around the world, as both a necessity and a solution to many problems. Indeed, agroecology is a science, a practice and a holistic […]

What would you do with a partner that time and again broke their promises to you? After a while, a bad relationship must end. But what if you couldn’t leave? What if your life (or, in this case, all life on Earth) depended on making it work? This is where we stand with countries that […]

11 Jun 2022

On Tuesday ECO unexpectedly ended up in the MWP disco, an exclusive party for lovers of Mitigation Ambition and Implementation.

11 Jun 2022

Eco is pleased to report that Brazil has so far been uncannily tame at SB56. Be it for the lack of relevant Article 6 debates or for the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming Presidential elections in October, the fact is that Brasília seems to have given their diplomats some breathing room.
