Land conversion for agriculture is one of the largest drivers of deforestation in Malawi. Being an agro-based economy with 85% of the population relying on agriculture, the problem only intensifies. Market pressures force farmers in Malawi to intensify agriculture and focus on short-term investment returns which lead to soil degradation. With degraded soils, farmers are forced to supplement their farming income through over-exploitation of natural resources which adversely affects the environment. Similarly, 52% of the rural population in Malawi are women who play a huge role in natural resource management and are significant users of community forests and farms. At SFS our vision is to provide women small-holder farmers with extension services, ready markets, profitable and customized and sustainable interventions to natural resources management that give way to regenerative or restorative farming systems.
