This article is a reflection on sustainable development, from a rural and local perspective. The text is presented as a counterpoint to the logic of globalization, according to which it is possible under the hegemony of capitalism to successfully undertake sustainable development on a world scale. However, the complexity of the theme and the enormous difficulties for the implementation of the decisions of the world forums made since the pioneer Eco-92 until the most recent Agenda 2030 were evidenced. On the other hand, the article seeks to highlight aspects in which the emergence of Agroecology can contribute to the establishment of sustainable rural development strategies, emphasizing some elements that can serve as guidelines for this new praxis. Furthermore, a reflection is developed on the importance of local or endogenous development, highlighting the importance of local knowledge, as a basic strategy for agroecological transition processes. Finally, it is reaffirmed that the path to be followed to achieve sustainability goals is complex, but it is a path of political struggle that should never be abandoned.
