The cross regional Programme runs across East and Southern Africa, West and Central Africa and Latin america and the Caribbean.

In our first 2017 newsletter issue is a summary of PROCASUR's most relevant initiatives implemented in 2016 equipping farmers to make a positive change in agriculture.

This publication not only represents for us a new instrument for sharing local knowledge-based innovations with all the people who follow us and work with us for an inclusive rural transformation, but also a collection of highlights on life-changing learning paths, local champions who really make the difference in their territories and institutions, and good practices as effective footsteps in the direction of sustainable development. This first issue showcases a summary of the most relevant initiatives implemented in 2016 with our partners in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
