SEARICE empowers farmers, encouraging them to be critical of their own strengths and weaknesses and enabling them to make decisions in a manner that protects and conserves natural resources.
SEARICE advocates for policies that recognize, support, strengthen, and institutionalize community initiatives on the conservation, development, and use of plant genetic resources.
Using participatory approaches, SEARICE helps build farmers’ research capacities for them to be recognized and respected as co-equals of scientists, plant breeders, and extension agents in the quest for agricultural biodiversity.
Smallholder farmers are at the heart of SEARICE's work. They stand to suffer the most from, and bear the brunt of, climate change, food insecurity, and social injustice. They are among the most tested segments of the society, but they are also among the toughest.
