2020 – Red GPAE

By |2020-12-14T17:01:13-05:0018 September 2020|

Project Description

Many farm families living in the Dry Corridor of Nicaragua face low household incomes and food insecurity due to changing weather patterns and weak consumer markets. Women and young people, in particular, see few options for their future and their role in their communities is undervalued. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity, advance social inclusion, and promote food security in Nicaragua. GPAE is working with small producers to improve organic and sustainable agricultural practices, develop access to new markets by educating consumers on the benefits of organic production, and promote inclusion and leadership for women and young people. It will also strengthen the network’s capacity to advocate for sustainable agriculture programs, policies, and practices nationwide.
