Co-construct and collectively advocate to support national and international institutions in adopting policies in favour of agroecology.


Evidence-based agroecological decision-making by politicians and donors is strengthened and systematized at the international level and in the 7 project countries.
The methodology used will be based on the principles of the development of the stepped advocacy strategy. On the basis of an overall advocacy strategy and its application in countries, action plans will be developed and will make it possible to transform and shape the diversity of messages resulting from the project (components 1 and 2) into policy recommendations.

All the project partners will be the bearers of this advocacy dynamic, and the NGO Both Ends brings its expertise to the project in this area.

An international civil society summit, Desertif'actions (D'a) 2022, which aims to put agroecology at the heart of the agenda to combat desertification and land degradation, will be organised. This unique event is a natural part of the AVACLIM project, even if its scope goes beyond the framework of the project.
In order to carry out this mission, a whole D'a dynamic is being put in place, a dynamic that will extend throughout 2022 and to which AVACLIM's partners will contribute. All information:
