Almost a year into the Nourishing the Planet project, Senior Researcher, Danielle Nierenberg, has traveled to over 17 countries and visited 130 projects in sub-Saharan Africa.
She is highlighting stories of hope and success in environmentally sustainable food production—including Developing Innovations in School Cultivation (Project DISC), an organization that teaches children how to cook and grow indigenous vegetables outside of Kampala, Uganda; The African LIFE Network, a pastoralist group in Samburu, Kenya that is finding ways to adapt to climate change; and Ecumenical Association for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development (ECASARD), an organization that promotes environmentally sustainable, affordable and socially just innovations to reduce poverty and increase food production in Accra, Ghana— and has put together a number of great resources to share with you!
