FACT: The key to resolving the country’s ongoing food crisis is through small-scale farmers and not large-scale commercial agriculture. They account for over 70% of agricultural production and meet about 75% of the national food demand.

There is a need to maintain, if not advance, the ability of farming households to produce their own food. Food security starts at the household level and promoting family farming is one way of achieving this.

Tricky one, because even though we know where the food is coming from, the option doesn’t let us know if pesticides are being used 😕

Today’s conference: We’re concerned after the presentation by KEBS on their capacity to regulate pesticides on fruits and veggies in local markets. Yes, this might be the responsibility of KEPHIS but we need all govt agencies to throw their weight behind the problem.

Reduced soil productivity, climate change, post-harvest losses and economic access to food. Shouldn't we focus our energies on finding actual solutions to these problems, that are going to guarantee food security in the long run, and not on GMOs?

Kanzira, mrenda, mchicha, malenge,sagaa and kunde among others. They also grow in abundance and with little or no care at all.

Extremely so. If we do not uphold biodiversity, we fear we will be a people bringing about extinction of organisms crucial to the ecosystem and in so doing, doom ourselves to a life of food insecurity.

Sounds like we should embrace organic farming practices and live as one with other organisms in the ecosystem. So this means no pesticides and chemical fertilisers that harm the soil and organisms like earthworms that play an important role to improve soil fertility.

So ultimately, a threat to biodiversity is a threat on the ability to be food secure?
