Since 2006, Instituto Agroecologico Latinoamericano, IALA, has trained campesinos, small-scale farmers, in agroecology in Latin America through popular education. This institution plays an important role in resisting industrial agriculture all over the region and provides a different perspective on rural development.

Rather than an over-simplified food system, sustainability will be more attainable if native wisdom is applied in celebration of diversity.
