Farm Workers And Farm Dwellers

Community groups, local and regional forums are addressing key concerns identified in the research. Through regional and national TA events these forums are connected with each other to gain a stronger voice and to push for the alternative, pro-poor development trajectories. Community members, with support from NGO staff, have produced short videos on pressing issues that emerged from the research such as access to land, post-land reform challenges, marketing of agricultural produce, evictions, and customary rights to marine resources.
