Planning for Regenerative, Equitable Food Systems in Urbanizing Global Environments (Plan-REFUGE)

India,, 2013, CC2.0, Unmodified

Plan-REFUGE aspires to understand and mitigate food inequities experienced by small-holder farmers in the Global South. Using a transdisciplinary approach we investigate how small-holder farmers in the Global South adapt their daily living practices in the face of a number of challenges including globalization and climate change. Lessons from on-the-ground experiences are used to inform purposeful community development and planning strategies. The project ensures a Global South to Global South learning exchange as well as capacity building of policy makers both locally and globally through publications and trainings. Plan-REFUGEE is a collaborative effort that aims to have multiple study countries including India.
