Farm The Future

Family farmers are an essential part of rural communities, providing food and stability. However, they face new challenges, including climate change, corporate takeovers, and government interference. The Southern African Agri Initiative (Saai) was created to protect and promote the rights of family farmers. Saai focuses on policy influence, strategic solutions, and partnerships to address issues like poverty, hunger, gender equality, responsible production, and climate action. The organisation also emphasises the importance of education, health, energy, and water access for farmers. Saai strives to preserve rural communities, combat urbanisation, and create sustainable agricultural practices.

This platform offers a space for communication and information for those members.
