The sustainability agenda becomes more urgent and apparent on different levels, from sector level to global level, for example highlighted in the recently developed ’’Sustainable Development Goals’’. Considering sustainability is also important on farming system levels, because all the choices we pursue and all the actions that we make today will affect everything in the future. Assessing sustainability is a complex process where environmental and economic aspects, social and ethical considerations, and good governance must be taken into account. In order to develop more sustainable farming systems, all actors in the system need to collaborate to answer important questions like: what are the relationships between the various elements of sustainability, what should and can be measured, and how are the results to be interpreted so that farmers can improve their productivity, what kind of practices improve sustainability, which channels can best facilitate the dissemination and adoption of practices in different conditions, and at what cost and benefit.
