The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, a global campaign spanning from 25 November through 10 December, is taking place this year against the backdrop of an unprecedented global outcry. Millions have rallied behind the hashtag #MeToo and other campaigns, exposing the sheer magnitude of sexual harassment and other forms of violence that women everywhere suffer, every day. Breaking the silence is the first step to transforming the culture of gender-based violence. 

Success story of a coffee farmer living in near Mount Sinabung, North Sumatera, Indonesia, who is empowered through FAO disaster recovery programme. He and his group are able to survive from cultivating coffee in the middle of uncertainty and continuous eruption in Sinabung.

In Indonesia, the FAO conservation agriculture programme is available in 152 villages across West and East Nusa Tenggara. It is implemented by 650 farmers’ groups with more than 12,500 members. This is the story of Munggah, AKA Amaq Genap, an Indonesian farmer who first heard about conservation agriculture in 2014.
