Challenge

Across East Africa resources are scarce and the problems of deforestation, soil erosion and lack of water are compounded by increasingly severe impacts of climate change. Furthermore much of the population lacks the knowledge or training to combat these threats leaving smallholder farmers exposed to food insecurity and rising inflation.

Solution

This course is designed to teach NGO workers how to use permaculture systems to combat these threats in their work across East Africa and beyond. Students will leave the course knowing how to implement nutrient and water recycling techniques to maximise yields in their farming projects across the region.

Long-Term Impact

Through permaculture the people of East Africa can work with nature to ensure long term food security for themselves and their communities whilst conserving their natural environment.
