“The photo represents a transformative way of and paradigm shift in carrying out international development: in the Global North - with the Global South. The farmer in the photo (middle) is a member of a SOLAWI, practising aspects of sustainable farming with less inputs on his farm. The research (including the interview with him) entails an investigation of agroecology for rural development, basically looking at how agroecology can sustainably transform food systems for rural development.”
