Fridays for Climate | Sustainable agriculture in Upper Guinea

🌍 In Upper Guinea, the Introduction of Sustainable Agriculture Practices on Family Farms is a part of the EU GCCA+ West Africa project.

“Family farms in Guinea are essential to ensure food security for a growing population, but they currently do not cover the food needs of the population. We therefore have a pressing need for greater productivity. At the same time, the pressure for increased production endangers biodiversity and carbon sinks in the forests of Upper Guinea. We have to produce more grain on less land. Restoring soil fertility is therefore vital to increasing productivity.” 🌿

- Gnouma Lazard Tolno, Team Leader of the project, explained that family farms are among the most vulnerable to climate change.
