Launched in 2011, AFSA is a broad alliance of civil society networks active in more that 50 African countries that struggle for food sovereignty and agroecology in Africa. The core purpose of AFSA is to influence policies and to promote African solutions for food sovereignty. Through this grant, AFSA will galvanize the agroecology movement in Africa; support and protect farmer-managed seed systems; provide a strong voice on land rights, and inform and influence policy outcomes on seed, food sovereignty, land, and the transition to agroecology.
