ADESAF

Project #1: ADESAF

Enabling women to have economic empowerment by teaching sustainable skills in avocado production.

In the Bafoussam region of northern Cameroon, where nearly 80% of the population lives on agriculture. The effects of climate change and harmful agricultural practices, such as burning and deforestation, deplete the soil and destroy the local ecosystems. Avocado producers in this area face many difficulties caused by these issues, as well as the lack of storage infrastructure which results in a significant loss of their production.

ADESAF and its local partner RECOSAF, are launching a project to structure the sustainable avocado sector in the village of Bapi. It will allow avocado producers to secure their income and increase their yields, while preserving ecosystems through the adoption of more environmentally-friendly agricultural practices. Women will be more economically independent, which will enable them to strengthen their place within the community and in the decision-making spaces.

ADESAF

The Association for Economic and Social Development in Africa (ADESAF) supports solidarity activities, vocational training and the development of employment in Africa.

Go to website

Targets:

  • 300 women trained in agroecological production
  • 1 female cooperative formed for processing avocados
  • 10,000 avocado plants planted

AVSF

Project #2: Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders (AVSF)

Promote the role of female farmers and contribute to strengthening their agricultural activities.

In the rural territories of Mongolia, they face an extreme continental climate. Mongolians have societal and environmental challenges which are exacerbated by its climate change. In the provinces of Khentii and Arkhangai where 80% of the population depend on its agriculture, pastoralists and market gardeners have to adapt their production methods to farm, live and to generate an income, all whilst preserving natural resources.

The association AVSF, in partnership with GERES and the local association Mongolian Women's Fund, have a 3-year project aimed at strengthening the role of women in agricultural production systems, and to ensure that concerns of their position and needs are heard by local and national decision-makers. Women will be trained in market gardening, sustainable cashmere production and business management. These women will gain their financial independence and a valuable position in the developing economy.

AVSF

Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders (AVSF), aims to promote rural development, supporting and advocating for labourers farming from disadvantaged regions.

Go to website

Targets:

  • 850 trained in agroecological practices
  • 30 civil society organisations supported
  • 1 advocacy campaign to promote women's rights

ESSOR

Project #3: ESSOR

Strengthen the agroecological skills of market gardeners and provide support to develop a marketing strategy.

Market gardeners in the peri-urban area of Brazzaville are increasingly facing food supply shortages caused by land degradation. This is a consequence from the effects of climate change, but intensive farming practices are used to help increase yields but are detrimental to their health and that of consumers. Unfortunately women are particularly affected by these methods, because they cultivate the land, and are more reliant than men to live and feed their families from. Also women struggle with inequality and do not have the same access to basic resources and services compared to men, such as efficient water irrigation and training. The project led by ESSOR challenges these issues by educating 250 market gardeners in agroecological practices. This professional training will allow these women to improve their production quantitatively and qualitatively, which will provide a financial income, contributing to improved living conditions.

ESSOR

ESSOR aims to help the most vulnerable populations to acquire the necessary means to improve their living conditions, and promote practices to engage the community for social responsibility and social justice.

Targets:

  • 250 market gardeners trained in agroecological practices
  • 7 organisations created
  • 1 marketing strategy developed

FNAB

Project #4: National Federation of Organic Agriculture (FNAB)

Through training and awareness, improve the rights and living conditions of organic farmers.

In rural France, female farmers struggle for recognition and acknowledgement. Since November 2017, the FNAB has been working for the justice of women in organic farming and is undertaking actions to strengthen and highlight their contribution and work efforts. FNAB will organise training on gender equality in the agricultural professional environment and educate on maternity leave in the agricultural sector. The FNAB will encourage the dynamics that the project has created among its members by supporting two initiatives carried out by farmers in the region of Finistère and Ille-et-Vilaine. The organisation will highlight the significance women have in the organic agricultural sector during “The Earth is our Business” exhibition (held 22nd – 23rd September 2020 in Rennes), it will aim to raise awareness amongst the agricultural professional bodies to also covering gender equality issues.

FNAB

Since 1978, the National Federation of Organic Agriculture (FNAB), has united agrobiologists together across France. The association has three main functions; professional organisation, development structure, and citizen movement.

Go to website

Targets:

  • 20 ambassadors trained in gender equality
  • 1 agriculture training module educating on maternity leave
  • 150 students from agricultural educational establishments

Isphingo

Project #5: Ishpingo

Supporting farming of sustainably grown fruits from reforested land.

For the past fifteen years, the living conditions of the Amerindian populations in Napo province, in the Ecuadorian Amazon, have been worsening. The booming petroleum industry in the area and the pressure this has on natural resources are causing significant changes in the lifestyles of local communities. For example, it has caused men to leave the local farming areas to instead work on extraction sites or in cities, and so it is common for women to solely look after their families during this time, as well as farming the land.

Since 2016, the Ishpingo association specialises in the fight against deforestation. To enable the campaign to continue, 90 women are trained in agroforestry practices and by developing a sustainable marketing chain of fruits from reforested land. The project will have an impact on the economic empowerment of women, who will obtain better harvests from their plots, and will contribute to the preservation of natural resources through the dissemination of sustainable agricultural practices.

Isphingo

Ishpingo works in the Ecuadorian Amazon to improve the living standards of native populations, while preserving the resources of the Amazon rainforest.

Go to website

Targets:

  • 110 women trained in agroforestry
  • 15,000 trees planted
  • 200 students sensitised to the preservation of natural resources

Re-Belle

Project #6: Re-Belle

Reduce food waste by transforming unsold fruits and vegetables into artisanal jams as part of a women's integration project.

Every year around the world, almost a third of the food produced and intended for human consumption is thrown away. Every week in the “Island of France”, 200 tonnes of fruit and vegetables are wasted, mainly due to the long supply chain. Since 2017, the association Re-Belle has campaigned against food waste by valuing unsold fruits and vegetables on the Island of France. The wasted produce is turned into artisanal jams and sold. Unemployed women work in a workshop in Aubervilliers, the Seine-Saint-Denis region of France, to manufacture the jams. These women benefit from socio-professional support to prepare for their integration towards sustainable employment. The association is currently working on consolidating its model - increasing production and sales, creating more jobs and developing awareness on sustainable foods.

Re-Belle

Re-Belle, established in Seine-Saint-Denis, provides an opportunity for people struggling to return to employment by using sustainability and foods as a mean.

Go to website

Targets:

  • 16 women to join the association
  • 40 workshops to raise awareness of food waste
  • More than 30 tonnes of fruit and vegetables saved
