How can we support farmers in creating a sustainable income?
The r4d projectFeminisation, agricultural transition and rural employment(FATE) aims at contributing to a better understanding of how farmers can be best supported in creating a sustainable income. It tries to pin down the effects of agricultural transition on rural people, on rural livelihoods, the development of rural employment and the way how that changes people’s lives. A particular focus lies on the risk that farmers take when they change from subsistence agriculture to commercial agriculture. The project provides results not only from singe case studies but from a comparative approach with studies in four countries across the global.
