What we do
The Gaia Partnership uses Systems Thinking as the core of a process to develop projects based on:
· The sustainable use of biomass resources for renewable electricity/energy generation in regions [systems]
· Sustainable agriculture for food crop production while avoiding conflict with biomass crop production in regions [systems]
· Generation of electricity/energy in energy-poor regions [systems] using biomass and ideally in conjunction with other renewable energy resources such as solar or wind.
· Enhanced soil productivity. In any regional system, the soil should be regarded as a sub-system. Practices to enhance soil health and fertility, thus increasing it’s productivity, is an intervention of dramatic proportions.
· Using the synergistic interaction between these developmental thrusts to build capacities for enhanced food security and resilient socioeconomic development.
· Delivering bankable documentation, such as feasibility studies and business plans, for the various sub-projects [interventions] in a region which will require funding and investment which, when combined, will have a holistic impact on the socioeconomic future of the region.
· A developmental model which will deliver projects which will be replicatable in other regions where similar needs exist.
The Gaia Partnership will regularly publish updated Bulletins on this Web-Site to review progress with the project. The first, Bulletin 1, serving to provide background information on the project, is already added to the Web-Site. This project will be completed over four milestones; each milestone will deliver a Bulletin or more to update the interested viewer.
