- 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
IDEAS: Strengthening agricultural activities for minorities in Hoang Lien National Park (PNHL) – Lao Cai province
Objectives: Sustainable improvement of the living conditions of farming families in the villages located in NPHL and its buffer zone by improving and diversifying their agricultural systems while preserving productive natural resources.
The National Park of Hoang Lien (NPHL) has 6 towns populated mostly by ethnic minority Hmong Day and Dao living from agriculture, forestry and traditional crafts.
These farming families face many agricultural difficulties and poverty rates remain high (53.3% on average), the main causes of poverty being:
- Lack of agricultural land due to increasing populationand land classification in protected natural park (since 2002) leading to the prohibition to open new fields of culture;
- The vulnerability of crops and livestock to climate risks;
- Low diversification of income-generating activities and high dependency on cardamom culture.
Expected results:400 agricultural VSEs supported and 6 sectors reinforced Budget :€ 630,000 over 2018-2020 Funding :Agence Française de Développement, Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region, France Volontaires Project management :Agrisud Partnerships :Hoang Lien National Park Office, Sa Pa Economic and Agricultural Office, CRCO, Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region
