Solidaridad promotes sustainability among soy family farmers in Paraguay

26 January 2017

With support from UK retailer Marks & Spencer and the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), Solidaridad worked on making soy agriculture among family farmers in Paraguay more sustainable. From 2014 to 2016, over 2,600 soy family farmers were trained in better and more sustainable agricultural practices. By preparing young people to be responsible stewards of the land, the project contributed to a long-term future of sustainable agriculture in Eastern Paraguay.

The results and lessons learned in this elaborate project have now been captured in a report. With this report, Solidaridad hopes to inspire others and create awareness for what can be achieved when the right parties - farmers, cooperatives, NGOs, traders, and consumer brands - join forces to make a difference in agriculture.
