Landcare in the Philippines – World Agroforestry Centre

Posted by admin on September 2, 2012 in Environment Protection with 3 Comments


Landcare in the Philippines highlights the success of community-based, farmer-led organizations in disseminating conservation farming practices and sustainably managing local natural resources. This Landcare movement began in Claveria, an upland community in Mindanao, and has been spreading in many other communities in the Philippines. The video demonstrates the significant contributions that farmers can make, through their own self-governing organizations, in promoting sustainable agriculture, and in tapping outside sources of information, technical support, and financial resources for their efforts. It emphasizes the mutually beneficial link that has evolved between the Landcare movement and the local government.

Produced By: World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF)*

Financial support from:
Cornell International Institute for Food, Agriculture and Development (CIIFAD)
United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
Agencia EspaƱola De Cooperacion Internacional (AECI)

1995

* To more fully reflect our global reach, as well as our more balanced research and development agenda, we adopted a new brand name in 2002 ‘World Agroforestry Centre’. Our legal name — International Centre for Research in Agroforestry — remains unchanged, and so our acronym as a Future Harvest Centre — ICRAF — likewise remains the same.

Posted by admin on August 14, 2012 in Global Warming with 14 Comments


You don’t have to be an environmentalist or a scientist to be concerned about what’s happening to our planet when it comes to climate change. The evidence is all around us, and as a whole, we’re doing almost nothing to stop the coming catastrophes. And it’s because of a few wealthy, powerful, corporate elites that the United States has almost completely stalled all action to help combat global climate change, and Mike Papantonio recently spoke with Gaius Publius from America Blog about the corporate CEOs who are helping our planet burn to the ground.

Fund Environmental Protection in the Great Lakes State!

Posted by admin on June 4, 2012 in Environment Protection with No Comments


Clean Water Action’s Cyndi Roper on the Michigan Budget & Environmental Protections. From Walt Sorg’s AM Lansing Radio Show discussing the staggering losses in funding for monitoring and enforcement of important water, air and public health laws.

73% in budget cuts since 2002, with an additional 39% cut this year.

What’s left to protect the health of Michigan residents and ensure safe water & air quality?

Why is Michigan still taking everyone’s trash for 21 cents a ton when other states charge upwards of 7-8 dollars a ton? The Great Lakes State does not benefit from these business practices, this money could be used to fund environmental cleanup, monitoring and enforcement of existing health & safety regulations.

Schneider served as a consultant to federal agencies and White House staff in the Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W.
