CAN is a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to sustain rural livelihoods and environments in the global south through the integration of agroecology-based research, education, and development strategies. Our work is both regional and global, with projects and activities in Mexico, Central America, and the United States, and our International Agroecology Shortcourse, which has trained hundreds of farmers, researchers, and community leaders from around the world since 2000.
