Our activities on the theme : Sustainable Agriculture
Agricultural products represent an important component of the diets of rural and urban households in Benin, but poor soil fertility, land degradation and water scarcity mean yields – and earnings – have remained low. ACED helps farmers to improve their production in a sustainable way while preserving the environment. A major innovation that ACED has been working on in recent years is improving productivity by using compost from water hyacinths, one of the most invasive plants in the world.
Our Sustainable Agriculture Events
ACED regularly organizes and participates in multi-stakeholder events that promote dialogue, co-creation of knowledge and identification of solutions.
