Rural Development

How do rural development and agriculture contribute to sustainable food security and poverty reduction in times of climate change, land grabbing, HIV and AIDS, and trade liberalization?

Quality of life, in particular for the poorest people in developing countries, continues to depend to a large extent on the degree to which agriculture is able to support an ecologically and socially sound sustainable development for men and women.

Since 1997 FAKT offers services to strengthen partner organizations in developing countries in sustainable agriculture and food security. Our consultancies on agricultural and related rural development issues are process-oriented and guided by the principles of participation and gender justice.
