The Graduate Program in Agroecology and Rural Development (PPGADR) was created in 2006 as a pioneering program dedicated to researches supporting the development of sustainable food systems.

The concept of Agroecology crosses academic fields and social frontiers as it is simultaneously a science, a set of sustainable practices and a social movement.

To this end, PPGADR researchers incorporate in their research knowledge that originates in several areas, interrelating technical, economic, social, political, environmental and ethical issues.
