10 May 2020 – Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to Reducing Hunger. The new resource is titled “Scaling Agroecology from the Bottom up: Six Domains of Transformation”, an article by Colin R. Anderson, Csilla Kiss, Janneke Bruil, M. Jahi Chappell and Michel P. Pimbert and published in Foodfirst in 2020.

The article discusses the results of a study conducted to identify domains or regions in the agricultural sector that will facilitate the greatest positive change if inequity, and power and control are properly addressed and dealt with. The six domains of transformation are identified as:

  1. Access to Natural Ecosystems
  2. Knowledge and Culture
  3. Systems of Exchange
  4. Networks
  5. Equity
  6. Discourse

It is concluded that actions to a single domain should be avoided, but rather efforts to support transformation should consider transformations at the intersection and overlapping of two or more of the six domains.

To access this new resource, go to the Solving Global Problems section of the library at, scroll down to “Solving Global Human and Social Problems”, click on “Reducing Hunger..” and scroll down to articles.
