Situation

This project aims at developing a concept for the transmission of agroecological practices (Do’s and Don’ts) in a lively and conducive environment for smallholder farming families in India and Tanzania. The innovative concept involves the use of a board game integrated with supplementary information materials pertaining to agroecological practices in cotton-based farming systems. The concept places a strong focus on involvement of women and younger generation in farming decisions. As judged by the project evaluation jury, "The board game creates needed awareness and holistic understanding – which is the foundation of all other activities in the transition process from conventional to agroecological farming practices and eventually food system."
