•Connecting Agriculture Professionals
SATG is open and dedicated to expanding its network of practitioners and professionals devoted to the building of sustainable agriculture in Somalia. With the help of information technology SATG has been able to bring together stakeholders from all over the world interested in improving agricultural processes in Somalia. SATG facilitates these online discussions, and documents the results and outcomes.
Through this network we have managed to tap into expertise from various parts of the world and adapt or facilitate solutions pertinent to the Somali agricultural industry.
This network continues to provide historic documentation of plant genetic resources, best production practices, soil and water conservation, post harvest and storage practices as well as policies and regulations on agriculture practices.
SATG works to provide sustainable home grown solutions to alleviate the food shortages caused by conflict and the lack of agriculture and food policy in Somalia.
Unlike most organisations, SATG employs a mix of both practical and scientific expertise that trickles down to the grassroots. All work and studies undertaken by SATG have real world practical applications. These studies are conducted in key target areas working in co-operation with partners and local farmers. SATG partners with local Somali NGOs as well as international organizations and agencies. More details on our partner organizations can be found here.
SATG focusses on promoting sustainable agricultural development in order to reduce food and livelihood insecurity. An introduction to our work in agriculture can be found here. SATG works to identify improved crop varieties and improved crop production techniques, for example repatriating Filsan, a superior mungbean variety, and helping to design better grain storage systems.
In addition to our work in agriculture, SATG has expertise in environment and livestock issues. SATG also provides training, monitoring and evaluation, and advisory services in partnership with other Somalia-focused organizations.
