Sustainable Agriculture

From 7 to 9 March 2017, we organized, in partnership with the NGO ECHO West Africa, a forum on sustainable agriculture in Kindia. This forum was attended by 67 people from the agricultural world, from all over Guinea.

After the forum, FAF organized restitution outings in the prefectures of Coyah, Boffa and Kindia on:

  • the importance of production and consumption of foods produced from organic fertilizer (compost and liquid fertilizer);

  • the harmful effects of the chemical fertilizer on the earth and on the human body;

  • compost production and organic liquid fertilizer;

  • no tillage or burn.

Thus, 20 associations have received the necessary know-how for quality organic production.

Restitution of the forum on sustainable agriculture allowed FAF to train 101 women, in the prefectures of Boffa, Kindia and Coyah. This training aimed to help them produce more, at lower cost and to benefit financially from this activity through the sale of products.
