A world where people work together to build sustainable and empowered communities.
Our areas of focus
We work in the area of community economic development, and focus on the two themes below:
In community-based tourism, communities offer services that empower them and are appropriate to their environment. That means that, when they approach ecosystems and cultural and natural assets, they plan and operate their activities in a sustainable way.
Sustainable agriculture and food systems
The concept of food systems is tied to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Overall, it addresses food sovereignty (communities are able to produce their own food) and food security (they have access to nutritious food).
Empowering community-based enterprises to
Improve livelihoods and economic prosperity
Increase community participation, decision-making and leadership
Enable positive changes within the community in the five capitals of sustainable development: natural, human, economic, physical and social
