Description

This mini Barefoot Guide is an introduction to the Seed Knowledge Initiative (SKI) partners’ journey of landscape-level work with communities in the Southern African region. It is a resource to those communities and those working with them to think about why this landscape-level work is important. They will find inspiration and lessons from successful stories around Africa and how to go about working with communities to support their landscape initiatives.

The aim of the guide is also that people elsewhere will read this and start talking about the opportunities we have to change how we think about the future, and how they might go about landscape-level work where they live.

A publication of the Seed Knowledge Initiative
The Seed and Knowledge Initiative (SKI) is a dynamic partnership of diverse Southern African organisations committed to securing food sovereignty in the region. We work with smallholder farmers to become more seed, food and nutritionally secure through farmer-led seed systems, improved crop diversity, and the revival of local knowledge systems.
