Sustainable Agriculture and Livelihoods

In a country like India whose major economy rests on the primary production activities, GEAG recognises the need to work with the small and marginal and woman farmers who form the majority in the farming community. GEAG focuses on developing and promoting locally adapted farming systems, sustainable and ecological farming practices, conservation of ecosystem services, building community institutions and so on to promote sustainable agriculture which can ensure sustainable livelihoods to the marginalised people. GEAG is also actively involved in advocating for policy changes that promote sustainable agriculture.
