A team of scientists, farmers, and staff from development organizations in Malawi and Tanzania came together to address agroecology, nutrition, climate change, and social equity in an integrated curriculum. Read about the curriculum project and download for nonprofit use.
Building on the work of FARM for Biodiversity, Farmer-led Agroecological Research in Malawi Using Scenarios for Biodiversity (FARMS4Biodiversity) explores the relationships between agroecology, climate change, landscapes, biodiversity, policy, and communities.
