Community Agroecology Network (CAN) is an international organization actively working in eight regions of Mexico and Central America. We confront social, economic, and environmental injustice through research, education, and action. CAN partners with community-based organizations, farmers’ cooperatives, nonprofits, and universities to generate local approaches to sustainable development. Our programs promote:

  • Agroecological farming practices that produce healthy food and healthy environments
  • Food security to end seasonal hunger
  • Alternative trade models that foster direct relationships between producers and consumers ensuring a fair price for farmers
  • Youth empowerment so that the next generation has the knowledge, skills, and opportunity to reduce hunger
