This is a program that works towards thriving living soil, promoting agricultural biodiversity, strengthening farmer innovation, knowledge development and sharing and ensuring food sovereignty that feeds in to higher levels of nutrition security.
These will be attained through appropriate biological and physical soil and water conservation methods, supply of eco-friendly agricultural inputs (such as organic fertilizers), technologies and energy sources as well as improved agricultural practices and local seed conservation methods. It is also based on the knowledge of local communities and introduces techniques where what is taken from the soil is returned back. MELCA has successful experiences in this regard and wants to utilize its accumulated wealth of experience and expertise in this field.
