Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Platform
The global food value chain initiative for sustainable agriculture


Agricultural performance and profitability are closely linked to the well-being of farmers and rural communities. Poor social conditions and poverty can hinder farmers in delivering their inputs and exercising their skills.

The question to be answered is: how to build attractive farming livelihoods and vibrant, adaptive rural communities, empowering them and increasing their self-reliance?

Sustainable agriculture includes the objectives of:

  • • Improving social relations between farmers and rural communities
  • • Enhancing empowerment (e.g. by providing facilities to build a strong rural social infrastructure)
  • • Alleviate rural communities poverty
  • • Ensuring and possibly creating employment
