About this blog

Welcome. The pulses stories blog aims to communicate the importance of pulses in our everyday lives.

The main objective of the pulses stories blog is to provide you with a forum to exchange stories, photos and multimedia about the cultural, economic and environmental impact of pulses on your lives. The blog aims to raise awareness on pulses through the lens of human-focused stories from around the world. Submissions should focus on: 

  • How pulses fit into the lives of people from diverse regions of the world
  • The wide variety of nutrition and environmental benefits that pulses provide 
  • The challenges we face in increasing pulses production, consumption and trade 
  • Successful pulses production practices and lessons learned
