Taking A Stand for Small Farmers: Agroecology Learning Exchange

 

Pic-from-Uganda-Meeting-300x169The Agroecology Fund and the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA) hosted a learning exchange summit from May 10-13, 2016.  Farmers and farmer advocates convened in Masaka, Uganda, with the collective vision to “amplify agroecology solutions.”  Attendees documented the summit using the hashtag #AgroecologyVoices. 
The Agroecology Fund is a multi-donor fund committed to supporting and encouraging the established practices of local farmers and their communities globally. It aims to sustain viable food systems, promote the economic well-being of small farmers and their communities, and address climate change. 
CAGJ and AFSA have collaborated in the past, most recently at the Fall 2014 US-Africa Food Summit.
