Abstract: Knowledge management and innovation appear as capitals to facilitate agroecology. The objective of this article is to contribute to the reflection on the emergence of agroecological knowledge. Experiences (2016-2022) on training and technology transfer in 14 municipalities of Cuba are analyzed to determine the sustainability of the action. The results suggest that agroecological knowledge management is moving towards sustainability: sources of local knowledge, people who facilitate activities (specialists from municipal entities), spaces of action (classrooms and classrooms in entities of the municipality), form of interaction between actors (conferences or classes), types of receiving actors (farmers), local synergies in action (municipal entities and productive forms), dissemination of knowledge and experiences (events). It is suggested to create capacities in local actors for the sustainable facilitation of agroecological knowledge management, so as to allow the conversion of tacit knowledge into explicit and vice versa.
