It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food.  At Earth Rights, we have been promoting agriculture that provides local communities with nutritious food for all and can generate decent incomes. We believe that it is imperative that rural development provides food security while protecting the environment. As our soils, freshwater, forests, and biodiversity are rapidly degraded, ERI focuses its programs on changing the current trend such as monoculture, and offers solutions that are more central to addressing hunger and poverty eradication.  We address how climate change has put more pressure on their resources such as droughts and floods, and that agriculture is essential to providing the key solutions, and that the smallholder farmers’ adaptation to climate change have shown to help farmers with a higher return in financial benefits.  Currently, we have initiated and begun the process to launch two food security projects, one in the Comoros Islands and the other in Sierra Leone


Many rural women and men can no longer make ends meet on their land, forcing them to migrate to cities in search of opportunities.  A profound change of the global food and agriculture system is needed if we are to nourish today’s 795 million hungry and the additional 2 billion people expected by 2050. The food and agriculture sector offers key solutions for development and is central to hunger and poverty eradication.
