Policy Advocacy on Agroecology and Sustainable Food System

Policy Advocacy on Agroecology and Sustainable Food System

The main goal of the project is to improve policy and practices related to agroecology and sustainable food systems in Nepal. The food and Agriculture team at ForestAction Nepal provides secretariat services to the Alliance of Agriculture for Food-AAF. AAF is a collective campaign involving Producer Farmers, I/NGOs and Civil Society Groups working on the issue of food, land, agriculture and climate change. The campaign aims to amplify the voices of smallholders, women and landless farmers and is committed to promoting sustainable agriculture through an integrated system of social development.

The major activities are broadly categorised under themes: Policy Research, Lobbying and Campaigning, Networking and Mobilization, Training and Capacity Building; and Documentation and Publication. The team mobilizes AAF in bringing issues of agroecology and sustainable food systems into debate through policy advocacy, lobbying and capacity building, supported by evidence generated by the team through research on related issues.
