CIRAWA is working with small-holder farmers in West Africa to improve food nutrition, local livelihoods, and ecosystem health.

Bringing together 14 partners from 9 countries, CIRAWA is developing new agroecological-based practices that build on existing local and scientific knowledge to help create more resilient food supply chains in 8 regions across Cape Verde, Ghana, Senegal, and The Gambia.

CIRAWA aims to demonstrate how working with nature can enhance ecosystem health and biodiversity, while improving local livelihoods and climate resilience using four key agroecological approaches.
