The main purpose of the intervention is to strengthen the capacity of the Native and Traditional Seeds Network in Paraguay (the Seed Network) in their efforts to promote the production and sharing of traditional and indigenous seeds amongst small scale food producers (SSFPs) and indigenous communities in Paraguay. The project focuses on improving the communication tools available to the Seed Network, allowing for a closer collaboration between the members in different parts of the country. Activities: The development of a phone app allowing for exchange and/or sale of traditional seeds between seed producers, farmers and consumers (1), monitoring of the production of traditional and indigenous seeds (2) documenting how climate change and industrial agriculture is affecting small scale farmers and their access to human rights (3) and advocacy efforts towards local and national government to support indigenous seed production (4). Target groups: Peasants in Praguay's Región Oriental.
