Groundswell International

Type of Organization: Non-governmental organization
Areas of work: Agroecology
Region: Africa
Country: Ghana
Description:
Groundswell International in West Africa is a network of national NGOs engaged in field work to scale out agroecology to small scale family farmers, and to advocate for changes in policy to create a favorable policy environment for a transition to agroecology. The founders of Groundswell International have worked for decades to empower thousands of rural communities and organizations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to sustainably improve their lives. They have been at the leading edge of developing methods to spread ecological farming practices, farmer innovation, farmer-to-farmer extension, community health, and strengthening local organizations to lead their own development processes.
