Farmer Field Schools for the agroecological transition - sharing experiences from Togo, Mali and India

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to an event co-organised by FAO, CIRAD and the NGO AVSF on the role of FFS in the agroecological transition.
The characteristics of the agro-ecological transition require transforming the way we accompany farmers in their changes of practices and production systems. Field schools are relevant participatory mechanisms for this, as they increase farmers' capacity to experiment, produce knowledge and build innovations themselves. However, there is a need to ensure the quality of implementation of these schemes, which has implications for research and development actors. This webinar shares the findings of joint work by FAO, CIRAD (Centre International de Recherche Agronomique pour le Développement) and the NGO AVSF (Agronomes et Vétérinaires Sans Frontières), illustrated with three examples of field school programmes from Togo, Mali and India.
The agenda will be shared soon. The event will be in French and English.
We look forward to seeing you in May!
