Promoting agroecological practices

- Understand the sustainable management of a farming system;
- Analyze the context of operation and identify the appropriate agroecological practices;
- Be able to spread these practices.
Expected results:12 producers and 10 agricultural technicians/engineers trained in good agro-ecological practices. Budget :€16K. Funding :“Un Monde par Tous” Foundation Project management :AGRISUD. Partnerships :non communiqué
Promotion of local supply chains on the island of Djerba
On the island of Djerba, family farms are weakened by a number of constraints. Agrisud has been supporting them since 2012 in partnership with the Club Med.
There are two goals to this project: to introduce new agricultural practices to secure, diversify and enhance productions and also to increase the value of products in local supply chains to generate satisfactory income.
Expected results:15 agricultural VSEs supported (diversified production), organized supply chains and access to Club Med Budget :€50,000 over 2012-2014 Funding :Club Méditerranée Project management :Agrisud Partnerships :CRDA Médenine, SMBSA El Yassmine
