AIM-PROGRESS releases internal library of sustainable agriculture initiatives

AIM-PROGRESS is pleased to announce the release of the ‘Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Library’. The library provides members with an overview of 75 different initiatives that are focused on sustainable agriculture.


The library is intended to be used by AIM-PROGRESS members as a quick reference tool to identify existing initiatives in specific crop areas and countries. Members will be able to use the document to help them recognize synergies and areas of collaboration with organisations working on sustainable agriculture. It is hoped that the library will also help to reduce the duplication of efforts in this sector.
