DEVELOPMENT OF AGRO-ECOLOGY AND FOOD SOVEREIGNTY
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT OUR PROJECT
Our agriculture project started in February, 2022, for a duration of 3 years.
Ecosoum’s objective is to achieve food sovereignty at the soum level through the development of local agro-ecological vegetable and fruit production that is sufficient to supply year-round the entire population.
The project was designed to be implemented in Khishig-Undur, but our ultimate goal is to replicate our accomplishments in other soums.
Our project is divided into 3 main goals:
1. to establish a 6.2 ha community agro-park that progressively enables to locally produce enough vegetables to supply the entire population of the soum.
2. to rehabilitate a 10ha community orchard that enables to create new sustainable jobs and reinforce community resilience to climate change.
3. to renovate an efficient community cellar and develop vegetable and fruit processing to enable year-round conservation and supply to the soum’s population.
MAIN DONORS AND PARTNERS
Our agriculture project is mostly funded by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The local administration of Khishig-Undur soum is also directly contributing to funding some activities.
The project is designed to be implemented jointly with the civil servant agronomist of Khishig-Undur soum. We are also supported by our partner PADEM (Programmes d’Aide et de Développement destinés aux Enfants du Monde), a Luxembourgish NGO.
