Kasisi Agricultural Training Centre works on the ground with farmers living in Chongwe and Rufunsa Districts of Zambia, where agriculture is the primary livelihood. In recent years, these districts have experienced massive deforestation, driven in large part by demand for firewood and charcoal. As a result, firewood is scarce. Poor agricultural practices and long term intensive use of synthetic chemical inputs, such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides, have severely degraded soils and reduced agricultural yields.
