ILEIA, the Centre for learning on sustainable agriculture, has announced the launch of its new magazine – Farming Matters: Small-scale agriculture for a sustainable society.
Farming Matters will put local experiences in a global context, bringing you background to the news, opinions, debate, and practical examples of how sustainable, small-scale farming contributes to providing food security, social justice, and a healthy environment.
The magazine is for development practitioners, educators, researchers, policy makers, farmers, entrepreneurs, students, and anyone interested in agriculture and development. Each issue has a theme as well as global content. This first issue looks at how sustainable agriculture practices have developed and spread over time, as well as looking at factors that have hindered the uptake of sustainable practices. The on-line articles of this issue can be read here.
