Welcome to Agricultural Voices Syria

Through the creation of a podcast series, we aim to reconnect Syrian farmers and other actors in agri-food value chains with the country’s experts, helping them to start Syria’s long term recovery.

One of the most critical impacts that the Syrian armed conflict had on agriculture was the collapse of extension services for farmers which, before 2011, were provided by the government. The transition to a free-market economy has added further challenges.

Agricultural Voices Syria aims to address these difficulties by promoting capacity building. It provides Syrian agricultural experts living in Turkey and Syria with knowledge and new media to sustain farmers in northwest Syria. The experts are creating a podcast series that will be accessible to those working in the Syrian agricultural sector.

This project is implemented in partnership with Cara and ACDP-SAE. This work is supported by an IDCF-SSRP grant.
