Millions of families in Africa depend on small plots or home gardens for food and income. These agricultural efforts in turn depend on healthy ecosystems. But environmental degradation and climate change are putting these families — who are already on the brink of poverty and hunger — at risk.
To stabilize such situations, EcoAgriculture Partners strives for a world where these rural livelihoods, nature, and food security are equally valued, and where the communities have a larger role in managing the natural resources they rely on.
Through our Landscape Measures Resource Center, we work with community groups and farmers to manage farmland in ways that benefit biodiversity as well as food production. Farmers in the Mt. Elgon region of Uganda and in Kijabe, Kenya, are learning about crops that will nurture the soil and provide nutritional benefits, and also about land-clearing methods that leave trees and bushes in place as wildlife habitat.
We also help farmers to identify market opportunities. Several farmers in Kenya, for example, now brand their produce as “wildlife-friendly,” which allows them to sell their crops at a higher price.
By documenting methods farmers are now using, and collaborating with ecoagriculture innovators all over the world, we also work to better understand the principles and practice of ecoagriculture, link people and organizations who are practicing ecoagriculture, and create tools to help them do more.
