Nourishing the Planet discusses the work of Farm Radio International
Recently, Molly Theobald, research fellow with the Worldwatch Institute’s Nourishing the Planet wrote about the work of Farm Radio international. In her blog she writes of how important and trusted radio is to the millions of smallholder farmers in Africa and how the information it brings is making real changes in their lives.
The Nourishing the Planet project assesses the state of agricultural innovations—from cropping methods to irrigation technology to agricultural policy—with an emphasis on sustainability, diversity, and ecosystem health, as well as productivity. The project aims to both inform global efforts to eradicate hunger and raise the profile of these efforts.
