New briefing paper on young farmers' proposals to improve urban agriculture in Maputo (port.)

Involving young people in urban agriculture is one of the main challenges in Maputos green zones. The three PhD students of the UFISAMO project Luisa Chicamisse, Ivo Cumbana (both UEM) and Nicole Paganini (SLE, University of Hohenheim) as well as the two colleagues Alberto Luis and Alzira Mahalambe of the partner organisation ABIODES (www.abiodes.org.mz) discussed with young farmers and published a briefing paper on those results.

Young farmers demand a strong rethink towards agro-ecological production techniques, flatter hierarchies in the farmer associations and more support in the processing of the products. Concrete proposals included agro-ecological courses, strengthening to work together in small groups to exchange information, and marketing channels through cooperatives rather than associations.
