On this fair we would like to introduce a concept where rural communities are able to produce fruit juices from natural trees which are fast vanishing from the mother earth.  This has a dual advantage:

  1. There is regeneration or natural forests as communities see the economic value in them through the income generation activities.
  2. Uptake of nutrients for the rural communities 

We believe that this will assist the communities realise the necessity of conserving natural forests and biodiversity.  This will in turn mitigate the effect of climate change through the carbon sinks which is good for the soil health the main focus of 4p1000 Initiative

The main focus of Simpson Foundation is Conservation Agriculture. However, we have noted that there is a direct link between agriculture and ecosystems such that if the ecosystem is disturbed, the agriculture systems is disturbed as well through the effects of climate change.  This in turn affects the livelihood of the rural communities as they have to develop survival mechanism and the nearest being the natural forests.  

In rural setting in Malawi, research has shown that 65% of the rural community's productive activities are done by women and young people.  In this regard we are integrating genders' equality to empower women, young girls and youth to take leadership roles and participate in the regeneration of natural forests from the planning, awareness building, implementation and equitable benefit distribution.  Special attention is given to girls have dropped out of school due to early pregnancies' to be encouraged to go back to school while at the same time participate in the regeneration of natural forest through value addition.

    Hi all, 

    We just wanted to make you aware of our activities at the stand 114 (0114 - Adaptación al cambio climático de la agricultura de secano mediterránea: su contribución a la contaminación cero). We are presenting today our mobile VR app LIFE AMDRYC4. It is available for IOS and ANDROID (https://apkpure.com/es/life-amdryc4/com.UMU.LIFEAMDRYC4 or https://apps.apple.com/es/app/life-amdryc4/id1540739695) and you can also play through the web application at our official site (http://lifeamdryc4.eu/aplicacion/). The application is available in 5 languages (Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French and English) and allows you to simulate the effects of agricultural practices on the soil productivity, and CO2 emissions. We would love to have your feedback on this and we are happy to answer any question you may have about the LIFE AMDRYC4 project.

  2. We have noted of your application, let us have a chat at your convenient time

  3. Good evening. I am Dr. Nandini from BAIF Development Research Foundation, India. We are representing our work on 'Soil restoration for achieving sustainable livelihoods, climate change adaptation and mitigation' through stand no 37. Please visit our stand and join our event on 18-05-2021 between 14.00 to 15.00 IST.
    The topic for the event is 'Tree based farming system (Wadi)'. BAIF Development Research Foundation in partnership with farming families, has evolved and promoted “Tree Based Farming System” popularly known as “Wadi”. The Wadi model has been widely adopted by more than 0.45 million families in 25 states of India. This has resulted in significant increase in farm income, reduction in distress migration, better nutrition and improved quality of lives of the participating families. The programme interventions have resulted in various environmental benefits including improved biodiversity and substantial sequestration of carbon in soil and wood biomass. This session aims at sharing the details of the Wadi model and our experience pertaining to it.

    1. Thank you very much for the invitation, to your stand.  Unfortunately on the said date, I had to travel somewhere for an urgent matter.  But will visit your stand and probably invite you to a chat.

    Good evening. I am Dr. Nandini from BAIF Development Research Foundation, India. We are participating in this virtual EU Fair and have shared our work on 'Soil restoration for achieving sustainable livelihoods, climate change adaptation and mitigation' through stand no 37. Please do visit our stand for understanding the work in India. 

    This is also to share with you all that we have planned a sharing event on 25th May between 14.00 to 15.00 IST (+/- 5.5 UTC). The topic of this sharing event is 'Environmentally sound and climate smart program interventions through BAIF Development Research Foundation', India. It will be based on BAIF, India's efforts on ground to build resilience of vulnerable farming communities against climate change effects by introducing on ground, the multisectorial program interventions for resilient farming system.

    So, please participate for enriching knowledge!  See you there!
