05 Oct PELUM Kenya to spearhead implementation of the African initiative on Ecological Organic Agriculture (EOA)
The Ecological Organic Agriculture (EOA) is an African Initiative that was borne out of a meeting hosted by PELUM Kenya in may 2011, for key stakeholders. This was an inception workshop for working out the roadmap for developing an initiative by the development partners to apply ecological concepts and principles to promote sustainable agro-ecosystems.
This resulted in a five-year programme whose Vision is to mainstream into National Agricultural Systems by the year 2020. from October 2011 to December 2012, this programme will kick off on a pilot basis, with PELUM Kenya as the interim coordinating body. There is need to raise funds for the support of this initiative and for more details, please see a presentation in summary as presented in a recent meeting in Brussels, Belgium
