    Abstract

    After briefly describing the origins and recent history of agroecology, the author critically reflects on what makes agroecology fundamentally different from climate smart agriculture (CSA). This article focuses in particular on the more transformative elements of the agroecology and food sovereignty paradigm to clearly identify overlaps and divergences with CSA and explore its incommensurable values against conventional development frameworks.
