AGROMISA - Knowledge Centre for Small Scale Sustainable Agriculture

Summary
Agromisa was established in 1934, and is linked to Wageningen University and Research Centre. Our aim is to exchange knowledge information on small-scale sustainable agriculture and related topics. Our target group is the underprivileged population in rural areas. Agromisa's main objective is to strengthen the self-reliance of the target group and to improve their livelihood by sharing experience and knowledge.

Agromisa's role in this is a supportive one, which implies that we are not a donor organisation, nor do we finance projects directly. It is Agromisa's belief that the gap between formal (scientific) knowledge and informal (farmers') knowledge should be bridged. To achieve this, Agromisa wants to collaborate with intermediary organisations.

Mission Statement

Agromisa works on the improvement of livelihood of smallholder farmers in the South and countries in transition. This is done by making agricultural knowledge available to intermediate groups that work for or on behalf of farmers. Agromisa strives towards a sustainable agricultural system.
