The Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) is pleased to announce the addition of three new organizations to the network: ABIODES (Mozambique), CORAF (Senegal) and Fundatia Adept (Romania).
Associação para Desenvolvimento Sustentável (ABIODES) is a Mozambican non-governmental organization that seeks to support local communities and improve their quality of life through agriculture and a sustainable use of natural resources. They focus on promoting agroecology throughout the production chain, boosting income-generating activities.
West and Central Africa Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF) is an international non-profit association working to improve livelihoods of smallholder farmers and promote the agribusiness sector in West and Central Africa. CORAF coordinates the national agricultural research systems (NARS) of 23 African countries, strengthening their capacity and encouraging common financial and administrative systems.
Fundatia Adept is a biodiversity conservation and rural development NGO working for almost two decades to protect the nature-rich, farmed landscapes of Transylvania and support small-scale farming communities. They give priority to creating long-term incentives for traditional land management as the best way to preserve biodiversity.
“We are delighted to start the year welcoming three new members to SAN. They are fascinating organizations that bring new expertise to the network while expanding its geographical reach. We are looking forward to starting collaborating with them towards achieving our shared mission of transforming agriculture as a global impact network,” said José J. Campos, SAN’s Executive Director.
