Alex Eaton – Smallholder Farmers as Climate Change and Food Security Leaders
Alex Eaton, co-founder of Sistema Biobolsa, will share how this groundbreaking social business is creating a movement toward regenerative agricultural practices among small farmers in Latin America, East Africa and India. He’ll illustrate how small farmers around the world can work together to increase global food production, while turning their farms, homes and soils into carbon sinks by using waste-to-energy technology, capacity building and innovative financing. Because small farmers still produce 80% of the world’s food, their survival is crucial to mitigating the effects of climate change, protecting biodiversity and preserving social stability in many countries. Alex will show how Sistema Biobolsa’s unique scaleable approach addresses climate change, food security, and poverty around the world by engaging “smallholders.”
This keynote talk was delivered at the 2018 National Bioneers Conference. Introduction by J.P. Harpignies, Bioneers Associate Producer.
