The Inga Foundation: Land for life programme aims to create sustainable rural livelihoods in tropical areas across the world. The project provides farmers with hands-on training, Inga tree seeds and ongoing support to enable them to establish alley-cropping upon their land. This initiative creates a sustainable rural livelihood for farmers and their families, providing them with food security and the ability to grow cash-crops.
The St Andrews Prize for the Environment is an environmental initiative by the University of St Andrews, which attracts scholars of international repute and carries out world-class teaching and research, and independent exploration and production company ConocoPhillips.
