Network for Ecofarming in Africa-NECOFA Charity Profile
Under the sponsorship of the German Government, the Food and Agriculture Development Center (ZEL) of the German Foundation for International Development (DSE), in co-operation with the German Institute for Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture (DITSL), an international workshop entitled "Ecofarming: Ecologically and Socially Sustainable Land Management" was conducted. The workshop took place in Ethiopia from November, 16th until December the 11th 1998.
In order to facilitate further exchange of experiences among the participants of the workshop, a network, called the Network for Ecofarming in Africa (NECOFA) was founded. Further professionals, networks and organisations working in the same field have joined in since. NECOFA aims at acting as a forum to support all national and international activities supporting ecologically and sociologically sustainable land use management in Africa.
