Recognising the Unrecognised: Farmer Innovation in Northern Malawi
Our approach in Malawi focuses on investing in farmers who have a natural aptitude for finding innovative solutions to their challenges, and then supporting them to develop and share their ideas and knowledge with fellow farmers. To acknowledge their progress and showcase the ingenuity of their innovations, we published this report supported by the European Union and The Development Fund. It showcases the roles farmers play in the dissemination of new technologies, approaches and systems to aid their development.
Climate Change and Threatened Communities
This book was co-edited by our Director. It documents the capacities and constraints encountered by communities facing changing climates in 17 different countries. The book is aimed at policy makers and academics working on climate change adaptation, anthropology and development studies.
Towards Sustainable Agriculture
In order to advise the families we work with on appropriate farming inputs for their land, we evaluated the difference between compost and inorganic fertiliser on the soil nutrients and productivity of three maize varieties across multiple sites in Malawi. This is an academic paper co-authored by our Director, published in the Journal of Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems.
