PNS, Plataforma National de Suelos
The PNS is a network that facilitates and promotes the exchange of experiences, learning and social and political commitment in the field of sustainable agriculture. It is supported by a group of institutions that work for agroecological development in Bolivia and implement measures to improve the living conditions of the population. In the implementation of its projects, the PNS aims to strengthen indigenous farmers. It is made up of 52 member institutions spread throughout Bolivia, working with 16,142 farmers to revalue healthy soils and adopt agroecological farming practices that provide them with healthy food and new strategies for adapting their traditional agriculture to changing climate conditions. Smallholder communities, as well as members of the network, are in constant exchange of knowledge through the PNS. The PNS also enables our long-standing Bolivian partner organizations to lobby at the regional and national levels for government support of a national policy on food sovereignty and to advocate for greater financial and political commitment.
