Joining forces to support agroecology and regenerative agriculture

Joining forces to support agroecology and regenerative agriculture

The United Nations Food Systems Summit in 2021 highlighted the importance of agroecology and regenerative agriculture as a promising pathway to achieve an ambitious food systems transformation, through wide inclusion and collaboration of different stakeholders.

Against this backdrop, Access Agriculture and the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) have recently signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to foster cooperation in scaling agroecology and regenerative agriculture in both rainfed and irrigated production systems across the Global South using quality farmer-training videos and audio files.

Access Agriculture (www.accessagriculture.org) promotes agroecology and rural entrepreneurship through capacity development and South-South exchange of quality farmer-to-farmer training videos in local languages. Over 240 videos in nearly 100 languages hosted on the Access Agriculture video platform have been used by more than 5000 organisations, contributing to healthier and more resilient food systems.

ICRISAT (www.icrisat.org) is an international agricultural research organisation that has worked in Africa and Asia for over 40 years with a mission is to reduce poverty, hunger, malnutrition and environmental degradation in the dryland tropics.

The agreement will provide a broad framework for Access Agriculture and ICRISAT to work together to strengthen joint efforts in promoting and advancing the use of quality farmer training videos and audio files to support agroecology and regenerative agriculture. Both the organisations will seek to optimise synergies in their outreach, communication and documentation efforts relating to agroecology and regenerative agriculture.
