BETTER BEFORE BIGGER

BETTER BEFORE BIGGER in addressing Hunger in communities

Yesterday was with the Mayors of different Municipalities and Cities of LOAMC (League of Organic Agriculture Municipalities & Cities). Celebrated our partnership with SEAOIL Foundation and LOAMC in establishing 93% hunger free in the Sustainable Farms that the LGU’s are working with farmers.

The mayors were talking about scaling up and I shared our mantra in Seaoil…. Better Before Bigger. This is a deep belief that as we make our work better, the scaling will eventually and inevitably follow.

In moving our partnership forward with LOAMC, I proposed to deepen our strategy in leveraging the Family Farms model towards the SDG Goal 2 (Sustainable Development Goals) to achieve zero hunger in the communities we are working with.

One of the key learnings for me came from a conversation with Mayor Jason Gonzales of Lambunao, Iloilo. He is an awarded mayor in Agriculture that have developed champion farmers in order to help change traditional behaviors in farming and set a new culture in his town. He said, “There has to be formation at the farmer and family level. This is the very core of our strategy.” 
From the first year of our partnership with LOMC, we established that the sustainable farms we advocate can attain food security in farming families. Now we hope to make it BETTER by looking at formation tools and improving existing systems in order to align Nutrition and Agriculture strategies in LGU’s.

03012019-1045. The new frontier of LOAMC-PH ( League of Organic Agriculture Municipalities and Cities in the Philippines).

The officers were in chorused to systematically institutionalize the advancement of the Foundational best practices in Family farms Investment Plans (MIMP) and experiential-based best practices in Municipal-wide Investment Master Plans (MIMP) within the Bridging Leadership and Governance in Asset Base Sustainable Organic Agriculture Development(BLG-ABSOA) Framework. The BLG-ABSOAD is the operational framework within the Sustainable Organic Food Systems, Healthy Lifestyles and Consumption(SOFS-HLC) Societal Development Framework in alignment to R.A. 10068, PDP 2022/2040, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030 and 10 Year Framework of Programs(10YFP) and IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements)-Organics International Organic Food System(OFS) Program(OFSP).

Hence, by the 3rd quarter of this year of 2019, the LOAMC-PH will launch the LOAMC-PH Leadership and Governance Academy (LLGA) as the new frontier in the convergence of societal divide in the municipalities and cities to generate conscience, competence and compassion to end HUNGER, POVERTY and SICKNESS with the Decoupling of economic growth hindering the true Sustainable Agriculture Development.

Along with the LLGA, the LOAMC will be expanded into LOAMCP-PH or League of Organic Agriculture Municipalities, Cities and Provinces in the Philippines).

Sir Jess emphasised on the quality of the impactrather than the intensity in terms of figure and has stressed for a deeper engagement since the intiative that the cooperations has strengthened was able to capture the pursuit of the social development goals.
