“How can it be possible that women farmers have alternatives to offer for adaptation in the face of the vulnerability of agriculture, but they are not included in the design and application of policies at all levels. This has to be remedied.” Isabel García Champa is a 42-year-old Peruvian farmer who was recently awarded a national prize for her stellar work. It’s voices like hers that need to be heard at the highest levels.
This truly inspiring story from Peru reminds us of so many dedicated women farmers we have been working with in Bolivia, Honduras, and elsewhere in our global Seeds of Survival program. There are hundreds of thousands of women like Isabel around the world. It is time the world listened.
