The loss of farmers is not a problem as long as productivity rises.

Many cities and their historical hinterlands are confronted with the systematic decline of the number of active farmers. While this has been made up by import and by increase in productivity, the downside of this model is becoming increasingly present, losing the eyes, hands, hearts and minds that used to care for the environmental resources. Agroecological farmers are key stewards of food, water and energy and their multiple connections. Consider how many urban policy objectives or Sustainable Development Goals are difficult or even impossible to achieve in an environment where all farmers have disappeared.
