Creating Knowledge

ALIN will focus on ensuring that it adequately understands its beneficiaries. A clear image of the typical beneficiary needs to emerge in terms of household income, family size, main productive activities in which they engage as well as means of sharing and receiving information. Baseline data will be generated through field baseline surveys and focused sessions with farmers as a way of determining their knowledge needs. A combination of information products and methods will be used to ensure that communities in of east Africa have access to usable knowledge to give them the means to increase agriculture, livelihoods, adapt to climate change and therefore move out of poverty

Agricultural Information

ALIN collaborates with The AgriCultures Network (www.leisa.info) to produce Baobab magazine and other media to build knowledge, exchange information and stimulate debate and concerted action among key stakeholders. In this way we promote sustainable family farming, stressing its capacity to address hunger, poverty, environmental degradation and climate change. ALIN also facilitates exchange visits between farmers based in the arid areas we work in proving a learning platform for farmers.
