Local Economy against Poverty

Exhibition « Farmers Portraits: Living with the land in Madagascar » by P-W Henry

September / October 2018 in Bordeaux, Poitiers, La Rochelle and Limoges

This exhibition, organized on the occasion of Agrisud and the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region 10 years of partnership in Madagascar, is the first highlight of a month dedicated to cooperation between the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region and the Itasy Region (in Madagascar).

Based on Pierre-William Henry photographic work and the collaboration with CEAS, Swiss partner of Agrisud, this exhibition illustrates the Mahavotra program: professionalization of agriculture and agro-ecological transition in Itasy.

This program, carried out as part of Nouvelle-Aquitaine’s cooperation with the Itasy Region, has trained more than 6,100 farmers in agro-ecological practices.

The 56 selected portraits show farmers, artisans and their families who have been guided to these new practices. Their living conditions have been improved and they now face up to climate change, while reducing the carbon footprint of their activities.
