Summary in the original language of the document

The present agri-food system in Norway, and globally, is facing severe challenges when it comes to ecological, economic, and social sustainability. There is a strong need for knowledge and evidence of how different agricultural production systems contribute to sustainability. However, assessing the sustainability of farming and food systems is a challenging and complex task. Methods intending to do so need to be carefully evaluated.
In this study, FAO’s Tool for Agroecological Performance Evaluation (FAO, 2019) was implemented and evaluated for its suitability in a single farm case. The study constituted the first author’s thesis for completion of the MSc in Agroecology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (Hansdotter, 2022).
