OUR FOCUS AREAS
Food Security and Livelihoods
We firmly believe that indigenous food systems possess the potential to address both climate change and food security in a cost-effective manner while simultaneously yielding multiple benefits for both people and nature.
Community Engagement and Development
We actively engage in open consultations with smallholder farmers and small-scale fishers, fostering meaningful conversations and dialogues to establish a culture of information generation.
Our initiatives encompass advocacy campaigns, peer-to-peer knowledge exchanges, and capacity-building programs. These efforts are geared towards increasing access to valuable services for smallholder farmers and small-scale fishers.
and Climate Change
We play a pivotal role in connecting the dots between various stakeholders, ideas, innovations, and actions. Our approach blends local innovations and indigenous knowledge with integrated development strategies to combat environmental challenges and climate change.
