Background Information:

The Green Innovation Centres are part of the special initiative "One World without Hunger" of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and are implemented in the partner countries by the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The project aims to support Green Innovation Centres in promoting organic agricultural practices in target countries, with the overall goal of contributing to SDG 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition.

Within this framework, Naturland e.V. conducted online seminars to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of soil fertility management and practices of maintaining soils in organic farming systems. The goal of the online seminars is to uncover good practices from different parts of the world that face soil degradation and discuss about measures to enhance soil fertility on the farm.
