GFRAS and YPARD recently launched, with IFAD support, a call for stories asking for local solutions that enable the agricultural sector to operate under the current partial or full lock-down of societies. We received contributions from various countries, and panels formed by the regional networks chose the most compelling examples.

Starting today, GFRAS will announce the winners to this competition, in hopes that their stories can inspire others and raise awareness as to the realities on the ground and the resilience of those working to feed the world. Second and first place winners will be announced in the upcoming days.

We would like to thank and congratulate all of those who contributed with their experiences, and are glad to share these stories with you!
