GAGGA

IAFN is proud to have been invited to be a part of GAGGA’s five-year goals. With the participation of IAFN’s training centers in Sri Lanka, Cameroon, Costa Rica and Bolivia, it was possible to form a powerful quadrille in terms of putting the Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action’s objectives into action.

The Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action (GAGGA) brings together the Fondo Centroamericano de Mujeres (FCAM), Both ENDS and Mama Cash. With FCAM, a Central American grassroots fund based in Nicaragua with extensive experience in supporting women’s rights groups, GAGGA sets out to strengthen and unify the capabilities of grassroots groups and movements to lobby and advocate with and for women to claim their rights to water, to food and to a clean, healthy and safe environment).

“We are either going to have a future where women lead the way to make peace with the Earth or we are not going to have a human future at all.” –Vandana Shiva


Restoring our planet’s life support systems


IAFNs 5 GAGGA goals

  • Empower women through Analog Forestry

    As part of the alliance, the AF Training Centers give Analog Forestry workshops with focus on GAGGA’s agenda. Participants are mostly women farmers, members of NGOs, as well as governmental decision-makers. One of the workshops main concerns is to analyze together with the participants the local situation. While women in Cameroon have limited access to land, pesticide contaminated water in Costa Rica endangers health in towns close to pineapple production. One of the strongest and most important objectives of the workshops is creating a fruitful network consisting of multipliers of different interest groups, to advance shared agendas along with greater lobby and advocacy capacity.

  • Change political situation for women

    Policies and legal frameworks respecting, protecting and fulfilling women’s rights are in place.

    Policy implementation meets the needs and priorities of women to exercise their rights to water, to food and a clean, healthy and safe environment.

    International, regional and national institutions, including donor institutions, actively promote women’s rights to water, to food and a clean, healthy and safe environment and allocate adequate financial resources accordingly.

    Considering the rapidly changing climate and global warming, time has come to act as fast and profoundly as possible. With the paradigm of Analog Forestry (AF), IAFN seeks to create an alternative to conventional agriculture to restore the planet’s life supporting systems.
