Farmers’ organizations are of crucial importance for the sustainability of rural areas worldwide. Shaping a future worth living in together with the local people fascinates and motivates me anew every day.
Christoph Bracher is responsible for international cooperation activities in Nigeria, Cameroon and Benin. Before joining AHA, he worked in the private sector for a start-up seed company in Zambia. In addition, he gained experience in international agriculture at the Swiss Federal Office for Agriculture, in academic research and with GIZ. The multifaceted approach to agriculture is also reflected in his educational background: In two master’s programs in geography, specializing in soil biogeochemistry and sustainable development, and in environmental and climate history, he has dealt with various aspects of agriculture – from soils as the basis of production to how agricultural societies deal with climate fluctuations. His fascination for the diverse interactions between humans and their environment also guides him in his work at AHA, be it in the establishment of a potato value chain in Nigeria and Cameroon or the organizational and business model development of farmers’ organizations in Benin.
