Dear Colleague

INVITATION TO GET INVOLVED IN DOCUMENTING CASE STUDIES OF AGROECOLOGY

We are a working group of the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA), documenting case studies of good agroecological practice. The goal is to make an evidence-based, coherent case for agroecology as the sustainable long-term solution for farming in Africa. You can see some recent case studies at http://afsafrica.org/case-studies/

You are invited to get involved. Maybe you already have a case study of good practice to send us, or maybe you have access to a great project as yet undocumented. Maybe you have reports and photos that can help to show the benefits of agro-ecological approaches. Or maybe you need help to research and document an example of good practice. Support can be provided in the form of editing, design and up to $500 to help construct a quality case study.

We can help you compile and share your case study, showing the many benefits in terms of food security, nutrition, poverty reduction, climate change adaptation and mitigation, biodiversity conservation, cultural sensitivity, democracy, justice, and value for money.

If you are interested in this exciting project, please fill in the below form and return to: afsadata@gmail.com

We look forward to hearing from you!

Kind regards,

The AFSA Making the Case Working Group

Agroecology works in harmony with nature, using cultivation techniques and breeding programmes that do not rely on chemical fertilisers, pesticides, or artificial genetic modifications. It builds on traditional agricultural practices using research, technology and existing indigenous knowledge, while at the same time ensuring that it is farmers that are in control of all aspects of food production. Using agroecological techniques, farmers produce abundant, healthy food sustainably.
DO YOU ALREADY HAVE CASE STUDY MATERIAL E.G. REPORTS, PHOTOS, DATA, QUOTES FROM PARTICIPANTS, OR DO YOU NEED HELP TO DOCUMENT THE CASE STUDY?
