Improving Food Security in Eswatini

In eSwatini, everyone is a farmer. It’s in our blood. It is our heritage. Most Swazis farm not for profit but to ensure their families have enough to eat. But in recent years, agricultural productivity in eSwatini has been low. This can be directly related to the changing climate, unavailability of locally adapted seed varieties and a lack of knowledge of ecological farming practices. PELUM Swaziland is working to make sure every household can produce their own food in an environmentally sustainable way.
