Agroecology is the basis for our understanding of agriculture and development. In the agriculture ecosystem, humans, plants, animals, and the climate interact in complex systems. To better design interventions for rural development, we apply an understanding of the interactions between human and biological systems. With a wealth of experience in designing plot and watershed level research experiments as well as analyzing data to better understand the implications of agricultural interventions, our team is ready to support you with scientific rigor and interdisciplinary development approaches.
