ILEIA, the Centre for learning on sustainable agriculture, is excited to announce the launch of its new magazine - Farming Matters: Small-scale agriculture for a sustainable society.
With a catchy new name and updated new look, Farming Matters takes the successes of LEISA Magazine into the future, highlighting the relevance of family farming in today’s world. This means keeping to our core subject matter of sustainable small-scale family farming, while broadening our content to appeal to a wider audience, in print and online.
Farming Matters will put local experiences in a global context, bringing you background to the news, opinions, debate, and practical examples of how sustainable, small-scale farming contributes to providing food security, social justice, and a healthy environment. We aim to increase interactions with and between readers through encouraging you to join in the debates, send in your contributions or opinions and keep in touch with us on the internet.
The magazine is for development practitioners, educators, researchers, policy makers, farmers, entrepreneurs, students, and anyone interested in agriculture and development. Each issue has a theme as well as global content. It is published four times a year and has subscribers in more than 150 countries. It will also be available online: www.ileia.org
