    Family farming, lifestyle & health
    FALAH is a network of interdisciplinary teams composed of 14 institutions
    This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC)
    under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme,
    under grant agreement n° 873185
  • Our objective
    Revitalisation and promotion of family farming
    for the improvement of the
    Pacific Island populations' health
    Family farming is a practice that has always been rooted
    in the culture of the people of Oceania.
    Today, it remains too little studied and is threatened by
    environmental, social and economic transformations
    linked in particular to climate change, which is affecting
    the entire planet but of which the Pacific islands are the
    most vulnerable.
  • Our objective
    Ensuring food security in the context
    of high vulnerabilities
    (rapid socio-economic transitions,
    climate change and health risks).
    In this context of advanced climate change,
    food security, anchored on family farming,
    environmental preservation and education
    are fundamental issues for the health
    of the populations of the Pacific islands.
    There is therefore an imperative need for
    changes in individual and societal behaviour
    for future generations.

FALAH is a multidisciplinary research project of the European H2020 program whose final objective is the revitalisation and promotion of family farming for the improvement of the Pacific Island populations' health in the context of social and economic transformations and climate change.

FALAH is a network of interdisciplinary teams composed of 14 institutions from Europe, Australia and the Pacific Islands, that brings together scientists and professional actors to share research results, knowledge and innovations for the sustainability of Pacific Island societies.

The project thus ensures the development of networks combining scientific proximity and disciplinary complementarities at several levels, from local to regional and from national to international.
