We are an international, multi-disciplinary team of researchers at TMG Research, a ThinkTank for Sustainability, based in Berlin, Germany.
Our research project Soil Protection and Rehabilitation for Food Security is part of the special initiative One World – No Hunger (SEWOH) financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The SEWOH aims at fighting hunger and malnutrition in rural areas with a focus on smallholder farmers. Under the umbrella of the SEWOH, we support the implementation of the global programme Soil Protection and Rehabilitation for Food Security by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, India and Kenya.
TMG Research has worked closely with the GIZ programme Protection et Réhabilitation des sols pour améliorer la sécurité alimentaire (ProSOL) in Benin since 2015.
In Burkina Faso, together with our partner GRAF, we focused on insecure land tenure as a major obstacle to sustainable land management (SLM).
TMG Research has supported the Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM) project of GIZ in East Gojjam in the Amhara region of Ethiopia since 2015.
TMG Research operates in western Kenya, in the counties of Bungoma, Kakamega and Siaya. Together with local partners, we support GIZ to implement the Soil Protection and Rehabilitation for Food Security project.
TMG Research and the civil society organisation Foundation for Ecological Security (FES) worked together to identify barriers to sustainable land management (SLM) in Mandla in a participatory research process.
