This call is part of the deployment of our Kiwa POLFN project.
This regional project aims to develop organic farming systems for food security, climate change adaptation and biodiversity conservation to build resilience in smallholder farmers.
The main objectives of the project are to:
- Increase the area of sustainably managed land through Nature-based Solutions (agroecology and agroforestry).
- Ensure changes in agricultural practices for food security through economic incentives. Farms and associated food networks will be monitored.
- Promote regional cooperation and experience sharing among farmers and communities in Pacific Islands countries and territories.
