Stimulating Mutual Learning Through Agro-Ecological Experiments
Low crop yields resulting from the degradation of agricultural land led producers to join forces in order to better cope with food insecurity. The two informal networks described below are made up of producers at the regional level in the Ségou and Mopti regions. The specific character of these groups lies in the fact that they are organized around farmers’ innovations for restoring degraded land in their own communities.
The linking between the Ségou groups and those of Mopti was facilitated by the project aimed at strengthening farmer research networks (FaReNe). Networking seeks to improve the sharing and circulation of information on innovative solutions adapted for the restoration of degraded plots of land.
