Here is our theme pack for January, this time about agroecological agriculture.

Agroecological agriculture is the application of ecological principles to the management of agricultural and food systems, and integrates social, biological, and agricultural science with traditional knowledge. Agroecological approaches to farming often use practices such as crop rotation and intercropping, and use biological solutions (rather than chemical ones) to manage pests and ensure that soil is fertile.

This pack consists of six elements, including one backgrounder, three interview scripts, one set of radio spots, and one Barza Wire story. Four resources are available in Swahili.
