From the Web site: 'Enhance rural livelihoods; Conserve or enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services; and Develop more sustainable and productive agricultural systems. Ecoagriculture is both a conservation strategy and a rural development strategy. Ecoagriculture recognizes agricultural producers and communities as key stewards of ecosystems and biodiversity and enables them to play those roles effectively. Ecoagriculture applies an integrated ecosystem approach to agricultural landscapes to address all three pillars, drawing on diverse elements of production and conservation management systems. Meeting the goals of ecoagriculture usually requires collaboration or coordination between diverse stakeholders who are collectively responsible for managing key components of a landscape.'
Basic message statement from the site: '...as many as two-thirds of all species could be near extinction by the end of this century.'
