    October 15 is the International Day of Rural Women, this directs attention to both the contribution that women make in rural areas, and the many challenges that they face.

    This day highlights the essential role that rural women and girls play in the food systems of the world.

    From production of crops to processing, preparing and distributing foods, women’s labour – paid and unpaid – feeds their families, communities and the world. Yet, they do not wield equal power with men, and as a result, they earn less income and experience higher food insecurity.

    Take a moment out today to celebrate as rural women. Recognise your achievements whether big or small. And on that note, we want to wish all our community a Happy International Rural Women’s Day! ⁠

    AgroBiz recognizes Earth Day, April 22, 2020. Understanding the two crises:  Immediate pandemic of COVID-19 and the approaching disaster for our climate; threatening global food systems.  We encourage our partners to rise up and do something about both challenges. The world was not prepared for a Coronavirus. Some leaders ignored hard science evidence and delayed critical actions. We still have time to prepare in every part of the world for the climate crisis that will forever change agriculture.  Equally, reflecting on Earth Day, we must act together worldwide with farmers and farming communities to offset the looming food shortages post pandemic COVID-19.  

    Today is important for all global citizens, we cannot patent nature or life nonetheless; investing in both local and global food systems is an imminent start to contributing to the threatened total food supplies and increased quantities of compromising GMO’s in food.  What is GMO’s? Genetically Modified Organism – hence the acronym GMO.  GMOs either function as pesticide producers or herbicide resistors, the organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally. We cannot shop our way into a sustainable future, we must be participatory in shaping our society. Running from GMO’s, toxic chemicals, patented seeds, monopoly and exploitation in industrialized agriculture and running to rural regions, local or statewide sections, farmer’s markets, community development and sustainable small-scale producers as the formulation for success.  

    There is no planet B option, we must ignite the conversation and implementation to learn more, do more, connect more and grow more – toward food assess, food availability, food utilization, and economic sustainability.  Now, is the time on this Earth Day to be proactive with your village, municipality, state or federal government with adaptive farming strategies for food security. Let’s create  solutions for transitory and chronic food insecurity before it becomes the next pandemic to our agricultural infrastructure. Likewise, AgroBiz.org is help for today and hope for tomorrow, our programs teach how food is BEST closest to its source – locally, regionally and nationally. We provide organizing principles in adaptive farming for agriculture stability for the globe, inclusive of the ecology, economics, and culture.  For more information on upcoming post-pandemic programs including agronomy, apiculture, aquaponics, hydroponics, vermiculture, seed saving, two hectare harvesting, crop or meat production, agriculture expansion and much more please contact AgroBiz at info@agrobiz.org or visit www.agrobiz.org. 

    Happy Earth Day 2020!

    Achieving the goals set in the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Agenda requires economies and societies to be embedded parts of the biosphere. The agricultural sector is well positioned to take a lead in making a significant industry contribution to achieving the SDGs while prioritizing and addressing sector-specific challenges. A well-performing and smartly regulated agricultural sector that can cater to rising food demands, can also help fast-track national efforts to achieve SDG1 (no poverty) and SDG2 (zero hunger). Agricultural growth in low-income and agrarian economies is at least twice more effective in reducing hunger and poverty than any other sector. Agricultural development can invest in the communities with farming or production facilities to reduce their vulnerability.

    The poorest of the poor spend most of their income on food, therefore, food security and accessibility is fundamental to lifting people out of poverty while right to adequate food is universal and good nutrition is essential for all. Ensuring health and well-being is largely tied to food and access to health care. Good health enhances agricultural productivity, and the intake of nutritious plant-based foods supports good health and promoting rural education will provide rural small scale farmers with tangible solutions to supporting themselves while feeding millions of people and gender inequalities greatly affect rural women’s involvement in agriculture, rural development, and food security. Many rural dwellers where agricultural production is important still live without proper access to clean water with basic sanitation and current energy use in the agribusiness sector is unsustainable and heavily dependent on fossil fuels.

    Of the over one billion people in rural Africa relying on the agribusiness sector for their livelihoods, most face low incomes, poor working conditions, deficits in access to both social protection and workplace representation, are socially vulnerable while agricultural activities will support the productivity and prosperity of small scale rural farmers, respect human rights, support gender transformative policies, and pay a living wage to workers can help reduce inequalities throughout  the region. Land degradation, declining soil fertility, unsustainable water use, overfishing, and marine environment degradation are all lessening the ability of the natural resource base to supply food and considering that most African economies are agriculture-based and have a large population of farmers, climate change is perhaps the largest threat to food security in the region. Consequently, its adverse effects can influence the lives of millions of rural farmers, particularly smallholders.  

    Oceans, seas, and coastal areas form the planet’s largest ecosystem and provide numerous essential goods and ecological services to support human well-being, nutrition, and global food security while food security and a healthy agricultural sector play a central role in preventing conflict and building peace. Ensuring strong partnerships between the private sector, NGOs, governing bodies and the public can mitigate the growing scarcity and fast degradation of natural resources, while meeting the increasing demand for food, feed, fiber, and goods and services from agriculture. SDGs offer a vision of a fairer, more prosperous, peaceful and sustainable world in which no one is left behind.  Equally, Agrobiz.org is committed to the expanding agricultural success with the SDGs.

    Ag Fact - South African agricultural extension experts begin to mirror the demographics of the country and the country's GDP increased from Mandela's teachable lessons on inclusion.

    On November 10, 2009 during the 64th Session of the United Nations General Assembly it adopted the resolution for International Mandela Nelson Day.   Recognizing the stretched history of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela’s principle role in transforming Africa’s struggle for liberation and Africa’s unity, and his outstanding contribution to the construction of a non-racial, non-sexist, democratic South Africa.

    This day is dedicated to remembering Nelson Mandela’s values and his dedication to the service of humanity, as a humanitarian, in the fields of conflict resolution, race relations, promotion and protection of human rights, reconciliation, gender equality and the rights of children and other vulnerable groups, as well as the upliftment of poor and underdeveloped communities.

    According to Nelson Mandela, “It is easy to break down and destroy.  The heroes are those who make peace and build.  Let us acknowledge and reflect on his contributions to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world each year as we observe  July 18th , his birthday, as Mandela Day.

    When AgroBiz.org reflects on the World Environment Day, we note that agriculture plays an internal part with the environment.  There are two major sources of air pollution from agriculture: livestock, which produces methane and ammonia, and the burning of agricultural waste. Around 24% of all greenhouse gases emitted worldwide comes from agriculture, forestry, and land use. Understanding the different types of pollution and how it affects our health and our environment, will help us to take measures to improve the air we breathe, there is no Plan B for the earth! 

    The United Nations provides awareness that the protection and improvement of the human environment is a major issue, which affects the well-being of peoples and economic development throughout the world, designated 5th of June as World Environment Day. The celebration of this day provides us with an opportunity to broaden the basis for an enlightened opinion and responsible conduct by individuals, enterprises, and communities in preserving and enhancing the environment.  

    "It is time to act decisively. My message to governments is clear: tax pollution; end fossil fuel subsidies; and stop building new coal plants. We need a green economy not a grey economy."  Secretary-General Guteress

    Happy Africa Day!

    On 25 May 1963, Africa made history with the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) the precursor to what is the current African Union (AU).

    Africa Day is intended to celebrate, recognize and acknowledge the successes in respect of the formation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU and AU) from its creation in May 25, 1963 in the combat against colonialism, racism, apartheid, and the progression of the continent.   Africa has made strides and continues to  work collectively, while recognizing upon common challenges that the continent face in a global environment and economy.

    Therefore, the world celebrates the 25th of May as African Unity embraced through activities such as bazaars, activities and events to showcase African cultural diversity in various aspects. To date, the AU  remains guided by its vision of “An Integrated, Prosperous and Peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena.”   Happy Africa Day to all!

    May 20th is World Bee Day

    The United Nations in a resolution noting the urgent need to address the issue of the worldwide decline of pollinator diversity and the risks that this imp lies for agriculture sustainability, human livelihoods and food supplies on September 25, 2015.

    The resolution recognizes:

    The importance of promoting sustainable development in its three dimensions in an innovative, coordinated, environmentally sound, open and shared manner, and the urgent need to protect bees and other pollinators in a sustainable manner.

    The fundamental role and contribution of bees and other pollinators with respect to sustainable food production and nutrition, which thereby promote food security for the world ’ s growing population and contribute to poverty alleviation, hunger eradication and human health.

    The contribution of the ecosystem services provided by bees and other pollinators to ecosystem health by safeguarding the state of biodiversity, species and genetic diversity, 

    Express concern that bees and other pollinators are endangered by a range of factors, in particular the effects of human activities such as changes in land use, intensive agricultural practices and the use of pesticides, as well as pollution, pests, diseases and climate change, which threaten their habitat, health and development.

    Acknowledges the urgent need to raise awareness at all levels and to promote and facilitate actions for the protection of bees and other pollinators in order to contribute to their health and development, bearing in mind that enhancing pollinator services is important for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

    Observance of a World Bee Day by the international community contributes significantly to raising awareness of the importance of bees and other pollinators at all levels and would promote global efforts and collective action for their protection.
