Sustainable Farming, at the heart of the concept is the goal of meeting the needs of humanity, without this activity being destined to penalize the needs of future generations. The definition is given by the Agricultural Sustainability Institute, an organization headed by the United Nations. Here are the five principles of sustainable agriculture to be inspired by. The first is the goal of increasing productivity, employment and added value in food systems, through a change in agricultural practices and processes aimed at ensuring food supplies and reducing water and energy consumption. The second principle aims at the protection and improvement of natural resources: this includes the conservation of the environment, the containment of pollution of water sources, the fight against the destruction of habitats and ecosystems, the deterioration of the land. The third principle concerns the improvement of livelihoods by promoting inclusive economic growth. The fourth focuses on increasing resilience, whether it is for people, communities and ecosystems. This implies the transformation of production models to ensure that the impact that could derive from extreme events due to climate change or the variability of market prices can be minimized. The fifth and final point is the challenge of adapting the governance of the sector to the new challenges, thanks to a series of rules that make it possible to balance public and private, ensuring transparency and fairness
