Special Feature: Cuba’s Agrifood System in Transition

Cuba is recognized globally as a leader in sustainability, particularly in its agriculture and food system. Since the early 1990s, when the island was gripped by economic crisis, Cuban scientists and farmers have been advancing agroecology as a strategy for increasing food sovereignty, resilience and wellbeing. This bilingual (English and Spanish) special feature highlights the work of primarily Cuban-based authors, with an introductory “framing” article written by the guest editors describing our goals, scope and process. This first set of papers and five short documentary videos (below) present a nuanced, in-depth examination of agroecological development in Cuba, including important innovations in practices, policies, and the social movements that support them.
