Stories from the Field: Women Working Towards a Non-Toxic Environment


The often unseen but disastrous consequences of chemical-intensive food and agricultural production are felt most by half of the world’s food producers and rural population: WOMEN. This booklet is a collection of 25 stories of women from five countries who are involved in an inspiring, ongoing campaign to eliminate use of chemical pesticides, and promote agroecology in the Mekong Region. The stories highlight how women, empowered by trainings and educational campaigns that introduce ecological agriculture practices, have the capacity to mobilize their communities for improved livelihoods through reduced pesticides use, and shift to a more sustainable agricultural system.
