Participatory and people-centered approaches are key for sustainable rural development and inclusive rural transformation. FAO recognizes the importance of these approaches to leave no one behind and achieve a world free from hunger, malnutrition, and poverty. Acknowledging the contribution of community-driven development to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, FAO promotes and scales-up these approaches across different technical areas of its programmatic work.    

This webinar will showcase the promising results of the methodological alliance between two FAO flagship participatory and people-centered approaches: The Farmer Field Schools (FFS) and the Dimitra Clubs.

During the webinar, the brand new publication of the global farmer field school platform will be flagged: Farmer field schools Gender equality, social inclusion and community empowerment. Experiences from Uganda - Karamoja Sub-Region
