Description

This compilation describes the way co-inquirers worked together in the drylands of Andhra Pradesh in South India to produce knowledge for sustainability and equity. Their experience is captured in the twelve videos included in this set. The videos show how local organisations of marginalised women farmers and urban food consumers are regenerating sustainable and citizen controlled food systems. They offer lessons to the international community who seek to eradicate  poverty and hunger while ensuring environmental sustainability. (4-DVD set with book)
