Rural territorial development

From theory to practice

For 20 years, SOS Faim has been supporting territorial development initiatives, particularly in rural areas. Why is that?

Within a given territory, there is huge potential for a consolidation of the civil society, with the perspective of giving more power, opportunities and resources to citizens, by using socio-economic and political leverage. This is all the more relevant since, in rural areas, the fight against poverty and the strengthening of the capacities of family farmers, is a crucial issue.

These are areas where democratic challenges are very strong and that provide a dynamic space that fosters a balance of power.

This is an opportunity to draw some conclusions in an area where SOS Faim plays a supporting role in the process of social change.
