European Commission
The EU is committed in supporting the agricultural sector in the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (sdgs) by the year 2015. It is on this commitment, that the EU is funding the ‘Adaptation and Dissemination of the Push-Pull’ Technology (ADOPT): a conservation agriculture approach for smallholder cereal-livestock production in drier areas to withstand climate change in Eastern Africa’.
BioVision Foundation was formed with the aim of sustainably improving life for people by combating hunger and poverty, through the dissemination and application of ecological methods that sustainably improve living conditions in Africa whilst also conserving the environment. BioVision is currently funding the project, ‘Dissemination and Integrated use of Push-Pull’ technology in East Africa by smallholder farmers to improve food security, environmental sustainability and incomes of the smallholder farmers’.
The McKnight Foundation supports non-profit organizations and public agencies to improve the quality of life for all people, particularly those in need. It is currently funding the Push-Pull programme to enhance smallholder farmers’ capacity for learning and adoption of Push-Pull technology through video and computer communication tools in East Africa, as well the research aimed at developing an integrated management approach for the Napier stunt disease affecting Napier grass in the region.
