For many years I have been associated with programmes of sustainable local
community development, often with support from the UN system. Right now, for
example, we are attempting such a programme in Jamaica. Here we are starting
with some thirty communities working with them in a (mutual) training,
demonstration and adaptive replication programme. Many of the communities are
able to produce local organic foods, but are suffering from lack of access to
markets. I am sure a bit of solidarity with some locally-minded people in the
North would help here and elsewhere.
I would be very interested in knowing who is interested in helping and in what
way with these efforts, including with technical, human-power, information and
All the best.
