Description

Key Topics: #Smallholders, #India, #CommunityTraining, #Water

SAI Platform invites all of our members to join us on a learning journey on Empowering Smallholder Farmers in India.

See first-hand the challenges and opportunities for smallholder farmers as well as gain insight into the best practices surrounding environmental and social initiatives such as nutrient and water conservation and the empowerment of marginalised women.

The journey will include:

• Visiting and interacting with local smallholder farmers in Khasimpur & Arjun Naik Thanda Villages.

• Millet Complex: methods of millet processing and local women business groups.

• Show Case: The Bayer Rice Traceability Project.

• Community initiatives and projects e.g. water harvesting & conservation, soil conservation & dryland crop technologies, nutrition and food security (Karakwadi Village, Gandhari Mandal, Kamareddy District).

• Community farmer training programme on quality vegetable production (Mulugu).

This learning journey will provide a unique opportunity to better understand the livelihoods challenges and sustainable agricultural practices adapted to smallholder farmers in India. Field visits and interaction with local groups as well as new technology and innovation for smallholders and how they can be applied to other regions offer the basis for this on the ground learning experience, while also connecting you with other SAI Platform members and stakeholders facing similar challenges.

This is also an occasion to network with other SAI Platform members and stakeholders facing similar challenges.
