Land Governance • Climate Adaptation • Agroecology • Sustainable Land Management • Africa
Having worked and lived with farmers in different parts of the world, I have seen the struggles that many of them face due to external threats like climate change, population growth, trade liberalization and the corporatization of agriculture. Although these experiences were frightening, I was left with a positive feeling seeing the dedication and passion that many of them have for becoming their own agents of change.
Together with our partners in the Global South, I try to foster this very same intrinsic motivation through knowledge exchange, capacity building and interest representation. Being part of an organization like Both ENDS enables me to contribute my part to strengthening local resilience, reversing the unequal damages caused by climate change and repairing the currently broken food and agricultural system.
Both ENDS works with partners around the world to ensure that land is governed fairly and inclusively and managed sustainably with priority for the rights and interests of local communities.
