OPERATION SRI MADAGASCAR - Offering support for organic and Permaculture local development promoting the system of rice intensification (SRI) with farmers to fight againt poverty in Madagascar. Contact: Email:
OSM seeks to provide support to the Malagasy members of organization TEFY SAINA and to promote the spread of the System of Rice Intensification and agrobiology through press and informational materials as well as projects and partnerships. In the 1980s, Father Henri de Laulanié, a French agronomist working with peasant farmers in Madagascar, developed a method of rice cultivation that revolutionized traditional practices, now known as the SYSTEM OF RICE INTENSIFICATION (SRI). SRI is structured around several simple techniques: early replanting of rice seedlings, replanting on a grid, partial drying of rice paddies. SRI is also entirely ORGANIC, which frees small farmers from the cycle of debt incurred by buying increasingly expensive chemical fertilizers and pesticides. SRI is now used by farmers in over thirty countries, where it has been shown that these techniques can easily double or even triple yields even in the first year of harvest using SRI.

Sahara Forest
Morocco is the ideal place to start the work of halting the spread of the desert and then reversing it. Morocco is upwind of the rest of the Sahara, so as we increase water retention and rainfall, the winds will carry the results of our work into the desert region, making the work easier.
