Small-scale farmer organizations in the developing world are historically underresourced with limited access to capital to grow their organizations beyond their day-to-day needs. Yet, experience has shown that small-scale farmers can be key change agents, and the most cost-effective actors for scaling out agroecology. Small-scale farmer organizations have the potential to quickly and effectively implement cost-effective climate resilient tactics, while simultaneously multiplying their experience and organizational impact. Grow Ahead’s intention is to bridge the resource and funding gap, acting as a launch pad for larger, regional agroecological development campaigns that go beyond individual commodities and focus on whole farming systems.
For the first time, individual consumers can forge an intimate link with frontline farmer organizations, directly funding farmer initiatives and support the global effort to address climate change on the farm.
