Virtual Fall Living Income Workshop
October 4, 2021 - October 6, 2021
Join the Food Lab, co-facilitator of the Living Income Community of Practice, for the upcoming Virtual Fall Living Income Workshop. Taking place October 4-6, short sessions will provide opportunities for those new to the concept and those practitioners who are well versed in the methodology.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in severe economic and social disruption, challenging public health, food systems and affecting lives and livelihoods of millions of producers. Added to that, the most vulnerable are at the greatest risk from climate change. Escaping poverty is becoming increasingly difficult, as is building pathways to living income for rural families.
What can we do to support climate-resilient livelihoods that ensure and sustain enough income for families to afford a decent standard of living? What efforts can be taken to prevent producers from falling into extreme poverty? Immediate and purposeful action is needed and that requires solidarity and support across a network of actors. We aim to discuss what has worked and find innovative resolutions to better mitigate and improve this situation.
The workshop is open to all entities and commodities committed to learning on the topic and improving their own efforts towards delivering a decent standard of living. Register your interest in joining today.
