Food Systems Caravan on tour from 23 Sept to 6 Nov 2019

The Food Systems Caravan is a 8 weeks itinerant and digital and media caravan which brings the main messages of r4d Food Security research projects to diverse institutions and the general public in the West African countries of Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Benin and Nigeria.

The Food Systems Caravan is a synthesis activity of the r4d programme Food Security projects. It is a collaborative learning journey of researchers and their partners for promoting dialogues and learning events on transdisciplinary and systemic solutions for complex socio-environmental issues within the context of food security.

A team composed of the synthesis project coordinators, a filmmaker and seven local facilitators from different r4d Food Security projects organise cross-project conferences, seminars, farmers' field days and field visits, and activities for students and NGOs while documenting this "cross-pollinating process" in film and social media. 

Updates can be found on the Food Systems Caravan Facebook page and on the Food Systems Caravan website.
