“SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGIES AND PROCESSES
FOR IMPROVED LIVELIHOODS”

Call for case studies and displays

 

We call upon development practitioners (individuals and organizations) to identify and document good practice in sustainable technologies and processes for improved livelihoods. In line with PELUM and PROLINNOVA’s vision, such practices include:

  • Innovation in sustainable farming.
  • Seed security and breeding rights.
  • Processing and marketing of indigenous and traditional foods.
  • Organic production and marketing.

Case studies will be presented as posters at the Good Practice Exhibition. Following the Indaba, an interactive Good Practice database will be developed for use by farmers, extension staff and other development practitioners.
