1. SOL Alternatives Agroécologiques et Solidaires

    Comments Off on SOL Alternatives Agroécologiques et Solidaires

    SOL was founded in 1980 by agronomists and social workers with the mission to favour small farmer’s autonomy and the preservation of our environment. Since then, we have been committed in creating long term partnerships with local organisations and are currently active in France, India and Senegal.

    For over ten years we have been working with Navdanya in India, an organisation who promotes an agriculture that respects the environment and the most marginalised rural populations. In partnership with Navdanya, SOL is currently developing two projects: “Small Farms International” and “Seeds of Hope”. They aim to empower deprived and marginalised farmers, especially women, in rural North India through trainings in agroecology, local seeds saving and biodiversity preservation.

  2. Initiative Re_

    Comments Off on Initiative Re_

    Initiative Re_ is nomadic. During each collaborative project our team will live alongside remote communities and work in-situ.

    Being based locally will enable us to facilitate the development of local skill bases through workshops, training and practical action for ecosystem-based landscape planning, design and management to ensure continued innovation of site specific solutions from within the community itself.

    With an emphasis on dryland regeneration we intend our pilot project to be based in Iran within the Chaharmahal Bakhtiari tribal territories.

    We will utilise holistic, integrated methods for mitigation and adaptation to climate change, ecosystem function regeneration, habitat creation, biodiversity protection, community empowerment and sustainable livelihood creation.
