It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food.  At Earth Rights, we have been promoting agriculture that provides local communities with nutritious food for all and can generate decent incomes. We believe that it is imperative that rural development provides food security while protecting the environment. As our soils, freshwater, forests and biodiversity are rapidly degraded, ERI focuses its programs on changing the current trend such as monoculture and offers solutions that are more central to addressing hunger and poverty eradication.  We address how climate change has put more pressure on their resources such as droughts and floods, and that agricultural is essential to providing the key solutions and that the smallholder farmers’ adaptation to climate change have shown to help farmers with a higher returned in financial benefits.  Currently, we have initiated and begun the process to launch two food security projects, one in the Comoros Islands and other in Sierra Leone


Many rural women and men can no longer make ends meet on their land, forcing them to migrate to cities in search of opportunities.  A profound change of the global food and agriculture system is needed if we are to nourish today’s 795 million hungry and the additional 2 billion people expected by 2050. The food and agriculture sector offers key solutions for development, and is central for hunger and poverty eradication.

Help End Hunger and Malnutrition in the Comoros Islands!

Earth Rights Institute is working directly with our West Africa office to initiate our first program with the Comoros Island.  In partnership with the Government of the Comoros Islands, we have been collaborating with their Consul Mme Diaby to push forward our participation to address poverty and malnutrition in the Comoros.  We are scheduled to go sometime early 2017 for our official visit to launch our partnership.  Our first project will be to coordinate local food gardens and a garden training program for the poverty stricken villages of the Comoros Islands.  Our projects will include a nutrition training program which leads to a good healthy life.
