Showcasing Farmers using NRM for Sustainable Agricultural Outcomes

 

The project showcased  farmers, and their practices, involved in caring for the environment.

The project aimed to educate farmers across the region, and the wider agricultural community on how working with the environment will provide long term economic and social benefits.

As a result of this project, there will be increased knowledge of natural resource management practices, and resultantly, a greater number of farmers adopting them.
