Voices from the farm: Priorities, challenges and aspirations for sustainable transformation
17 Oct 22
Farmers are at the core of sustainable commodities production; however too often, they are not given a seat at the table.
Ahead of our Sustainable Landscapes and Commodities conference in November, our online panel of farmers from across the globe discussed:
• The challenges they have faced this year and are likely to face in the year ahead. • Their priorities for the future of their farms and families. • What they need from food companies to secure their livelihoods, and future sustainable food production. • Practical examples of specific initiatives that have benefited farming communities and driven a positive impact of the ground.
Our panel of farmers:
• Stephen Lansana, palm oil farmer and inaugural secretary, Ngoyai Gbaayegie Farmers Group, Sierra Leone • Kule Francis Baita, coffee and fruit farmer and board secretary, Bukonzo Organic Cooperative Union, Uganda • Jorge Bianciotto, crop farmer and board, Sociedad Rural de Pergamino, Argentina • Ashirafu Kihongosi, sunflower and soybean farmer and project training lead, Clinton Development Initiative, Tanzania
This webinar was moderated by Ian Welsh, publishing director, Innovation Forum.
