Our expertise

VSF International’s members are mainly active in the implementation of sustainable development programs in 28 countries in Africa, the Americas and Asia. However, we also provide emergency aid when the situations of the areas where we work doesn’t allow rural communities to produce their food in a safe context or when climatic events represent a threat for the survival.

Our expertise in managing development projects in the field of agriculture and livestock keeping are complemented by our technical and methodological support in animal health, welfare and production, development of small-scale (livestock) farming and agroecological systems.

Parallel to that, we consider that development education and awareness raising activities must stay central to our scope, in order to build an active citizenship that can ultimately influence on public policies. We advocate for the promotion of small scale (livestock) farming and for the recognition of their fundamental role in food and nutritional security and climate change mitigation.
