PROLINNOVA Niger: Arid Land, Fertile Minds (French Version)

  • 5 months ago

PROLINNOVA is a global learning network that promotes local innovation led by small-scale farmers in sustainable agriculture and the management of natural resources. Launched in 2001, PROLINNOVA is active in 17 developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. PROLINNOVA partners support farmer-led research and development that improves livelihoods and food security of the rural poor. This, in turn, helps the farmers take better care of their land, animal, and water resources. This video film captures highlights of the work of PROLINNOVA partners in Niger. It documents how a farmer-led innovation approach to development has improved the traditional fish-smoking oven and found ways to use millet glumes as fertilizer for cassava. Other films in this series profile PROLINNOVA partners' work in Cambodia and South Africa, while a global film overview film looks at a decade of accomplishments by the network and considers new challenges.
