Farmers in Latin America can benefit from transitioning to an ecological approach to food production that considers the environmental, social and economic impacts to communities and contributes to food security. Centro de Estudos e Promoção da Agricultura de Grupo (CEPAGRO) works with grantee partners throughout Latin America to develop a collaborative network of farmers and a learning platform to share training opportunities and agroecological best practices. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Brazil. CEPAGRO’s activities strengthen grassroots organizations through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
