SAAL development meta-model
There are several organizations working with a goal of "helping small farmers" sustain their farming. They are from various domains like academic institutions, technology & product companies, civil society organizations, government laboratories, departments and marketing agencies but none of them are really solving the "small farmer" problems. They all excel in a particular area but yet to provide a comprehensive intervention to engage with all stages of farming and farmers livelihood which will make an impact to their lives and livelihood.
The birth of Sustainable Agro Alliance, SAAL consortium is to evolve a platform to bring all those with common goals to make an impact in small farmer agriculture with a common process to deliver value in entire value chain. The partner organizations integrated with a common process with loose coupling, passing inputs & outputs like products, services and technology between them to realize the common goal.
