Putting Environment at the Heart of Farming

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

In this episode we celebrate World Environment Day. IFAD’s Marie Haga and Jo Puri talk about how IFAD is balancing development and the environment when it comes to development. And then with Africa Climate Week coming up we have innovative tales from East and Southern Africa. Plus a new report on Nature Based Solutions in agriculture.

We talk to Kehkashan Basu, a UN Human Rights Champion, about how the environment inspired her. Also we check in on changes to environmental policies in Afghanistan, plus organic farming in China, and a new group called Chefs for the Planet. And we look at the International Day of Family Remittances, a vital source of funding for people living in rural communities in the developing world.

This is Farms. Food. Future. – a podcast that’s Good for You, Good for the Planet and Good for Farmers brought to you by the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
