AME Foundation has been strengthening sustainable small farmer livelihoods by promoting ecological agriculture for more than three decades. AME Foundation has been guiding small and marginal rainfed farmers to manage their natural farm resources better, practice alternative eco-farming practices for enhanced yields and reduced costs. AMEF believes that sustainable management of natural resources is the key to improved livelihoods, stable agricultural development as well as improved ecological balances.
Promoting Agro ecology
Agroecological systems are diverse, more resilient to the impacts of climate change and is a viable alternative, that can contribute substantially to food and nutrition security, soil fertility, access to water, rural employment, and farmer autonomy. AMEF has been promoting agro ecology in drylands since three decades through LEISA approaches.
Facilitating Knowledge Exchange
An enormous body of practices and experiences on agroecology, generated and developed on the field need to be shared widely to inspire farmers make the transition to agroecological way of farming. AMEF facilitates knowledge exchange by helping organisations systematically document and share experiences widely through various means.
