SAN welcomes new members from Vietnam, Mexico, Indonesia, Ecuador and Pakistan

Updated: Dec 23, 2022

The Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) is pleased to announce the addition of five new organizations to the network: ADC (Vietnam), AMEBOSCO (Mexico), Kaleka (Indonesia), Fundación Pachamama (Ecuador) and Rural Aid (Pakistan).

Agriculture and Forestry Research and Development Center for Mountainous Region (ADC) is a Vietnamese non-profit organization that implements research activities and training in the fields of agriculture, forestry, sustainable livelihoods, climate change, and natural resources conservation. ADC brings to SAN its experience supporting ethnic minorities – especially women – and empowering vulnerable rural communities.

The Mexican Association of Edible Forests (AMEBOSCO) promotes a diverse and profitable agroforestry model in Mexico – the edible forest model – that develops agricultural products of commercial value, while restoring tropical forest ecosystems and preserving traditional wisdom. The association is made of a network of some 500 families, mostly from indigenous communities.

Kaleka, formerly known as Inobu, is a women-led organization that seeks to improve Indonesia’s public policies and to strengthen civil society to sustainably manage natural resources and agricultural production systems. They do so through collaborative applied research, working with local and indigenous communities to identify their priorities.

Fundación Pachamama is an NGO based in Ecuador with over 25 years of experience working with indigenous communities in the Amazon region. They are a key player in the conservation of Amazonian territories and the sustainable use of its natural resources by implementing agricultural projects that promote low-impact crops as a contribution to the sustainable management of the rainforest.

Rural Aid works to alleviate poverty in rural Pakistan through sustainable development solutions, empowering the marginalized and vulnerable rural communities regardless of their caste, creed, or nationality. Rural Aid aims to build sustainable and resilient communities, while promoting climate smart agriculture and protecting natural resources, including water, air, and biodiversity.

The incorporation of these new five members keeps expanding SAN’s geographic and thematic scope and reinforcing its capacity to transform agriculture globally.

“SAN continues growing into an impact network that aims to transform agriculture and create sustainable and regenerative food systems at a global scale. Humanity needs immediate joint solutions so collaboration with other organizations, including NGOs, companies, public entities, funders and investors, is now more important than ever,” said José Joaquín Campos, SAN’s Executive Director.

If your organization also strives to secure a sustainable future for food, nature and rural communities, you can register your interest in becoming a SAN member here.
