Another busy week for Nourishing the Planet as we prepare to head to Nigeria for a few weeks to visit with farmers, scientists, reporters and research organizations to evaluate their work on the ground in biodiversity conservation and crop variety development.

This week we saw the first two parts of a series on the Africa Sustainable Development Council (ASUDEC) in Burkina Faso and their work to challenge the obstacles facing small scale farmers. Our featured project in India focused on the Tamil Nadu Women’s Development Project and how women find economic safety in numbers. Our weekly innovation highlighted the Acara Institute and their work to turn classroom learning into real business models that can help alleviate hunger.

We were featured in Heifer International’s World Ark Magazine, Niger’s Le Republicain, the Jerusalem Post, and two newspapers in Korea on our recommendations for the G20 leaders on improving global hunger, the Seoul Times and the Korea Herald.
