Social Policy Ecology Research Institute (SPERI)

SPERI is engaged in advocacy on public policy on Natural Resource Management. SPERI’s direct engagement with lawmakers contributed to the revised Land Law (2003) allowing female names, rather than just male names, to appear on land rights documents. Their methodology is based on the mobilization of farmers in highland areas (mostly inhabited by ethnic minorities). SPERI manages three Farmers Free Schools in upland areas promoting and teaching environmentally sustainable agriculture practices.
