Community Trainers of CIRPED in a meeting with the farmers.CIRPED has worked, since 1993, to organize and empower farmerís and community groups in rural villages to develop agricultural production systems which are self-perpetuating for crops and animals and which allow farmers to place their products on the market at all times of the year with remunerative prices.† These systems are designed to allow farmers to use, entirely, renewable energy sources available in the zone while limiting external inputs and promoting sound natural resources management.† CIRPED has a team of trained community organizers, representing many disciplines able to carry out its program in rural communities.

CIRPED supports farmerís organizations through:

  • Research on environmental action and natural resources protection and management;

  • Rehabilitation and protection of flora and fauna;

  • Restoration, protection and conservation of soils and water in order to increase the agricultural value of valleys and bas-ponds;

  • Integration of agriculture and forestry;

  • Training, information, education and communication on sustainable farming including organic farming, biodynamic farming and ecologic farming;

  • Support of local management of village lands;†

  • Support for the creation of rural community banks for local savings, micro-credit and investment to promote autonomous finance for local sustainable development.
