1. Huriye Kara, retired organic horticulture specialist says:

“I would like to see  more funding support projects that directed to small-scale farmers to sustain their local agricultural biodiversity  for food security.”

2. Pat Lanyasunya, AFRICA LIFE Network, Kenya says:

“More funding should be directed to new innovative ideas about community livelihoods such as alternatives to pastoralism i.e. introducing crop agriculture to ASAL ecosystems, fish farming in pastoralists areas, harnessing of natural resources to generate income in sole economy communities such as livestock keepers etc.”

3. Prince Charles Dickson, BurningPot.com, Nigeria says:

“I would like to see more of the funding channeled towards small-scale farmers in rural areas, this should help them in several forms of mechanized form of farming. A whole lot of them engage in some crude form of farming and could certainly make do of improved farming methods. Also access to improved seedlings is one that these funds could be used to pursue for the farmers.”
