Publications

  • This Handbook on Agroecology: Farmers’ Manual on Sustainable Practices is third in the series of booklets on Agroecology for small and marginal farmers, brought out by the Focus on the Global South in partnership with the Rosa LuxembergStiftung (RLS), South Asia. 

  • This booklet is the second in the series on small and marginal farmers in India (following Where Have all the Small Farmers Gone?) and presents the advantages of agroecological practices.

    We travelled far and wide to understand how farmers are growing what they want to grow, preserving indigenous varieties of seeds, eating nutritious and healthy food, increasing the quantity of their produce and making profits by selling in markets. 

  • We are pleased to present our 2014 Annual Report.

    The year 2014 brought many challenges across the South and South East Asia region. In Thailand, the military seized power in May after months of political upheaval and protests. The junta imposed several orders and declared martial law that inhibited the public space for social movements and non-state actors, including the ability for community-based organizations, such as Focus, to continue activities for social justice.
