Joining Forces with PrAEctiCe Project!

We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with the PrAEctiCe project, a groundbreaking initiative dedicated to advancing agroecological sustainability for smallholder farmers in East Africa. PrAEctiCe introduces a tailored set of agroecology indicators and a decision support tool designed to translate concepts into actionable strategies.

At the heart of PrAEctiCe is a focus on circular water-energy-nutrient systems, particularly in integrated aqua-agriculture, aiming to address sustainability challenges in East Africa’s farming practices. With a core emphasis on the needs of smallholder farmers, the project quantifies the impacts of agroecological practices, ensuring financial viability and fostering a sustainable transformation.

The objectives of PrAEctiCe are comprehensive, including mapping existing practices, analyzing barriers and drivers, developing an agroecological indicator framework, creating a user-friendly decision support tool, validating through living labs, and promoting awareness and capacity building while increasing opportunities for women and youth.

Through our collaboration with PrAEctiCe, RURALITIES reaffirms its commitment to supporting innovative initiatives that drive positive change and promote sustainable development in rural communities. Together, we look forward to advancing agroecological sustainability and empowering smallholder farmers across East Africa.
