The June 2014 issue of Farming Matters will focus on how agroecological approaches strengthen the resilience of family farmers and help them alleviate poverty.
The key focus will be on how agroecological farming practices and the social dimensions of family farming contribute to strengthening resilience and sustainable resource management.
In addition to that, Farming Matters will examine the aspects of gender i.e. roles of young people and women and how policymakers, organizations and researchers can actively encourage the effective and widespread use of agroecological approaches as a way to address rural poverty.
Deadline for submissions of articles is April 1st, 2014.
