"‘Coalition of The Willing’ is a film that discusses how we can use new internet technologies to leverage the powers of activists, experts, and ordinary citizens in collaborative ventures to combat climate change. Through analyses of swarm activity and social revolution, ‘Coalition of the Willing’ makes a compelling case for the new online activism and explains how to bring the fight against global warming to the people. As the film tackles the subject of online activism, we decided that the logical home for ‘Coalition of The Willing’ is here online."

"Better Beans for Africa
Established in 1996, the Pan-Africa Bean Research Alliance (PABRA) is a consortium of African regional bean networks (the Eastern and Central Africa Bean Research Network, ECABREN, and the Southern Africa Bean Research Network, SABRN) consisting of National African Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) in a total of 18 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, an international research organisation (CIAT) and a number of donor organisations. PABRA's goal is to enhance the food security, income and health of resource-poor farmers in Africa through research on beans. To achieve this goal, PABRA works in partnership with farmers and rural communities, NGOs, traders and other private sector partners. The major beneficiaries of PABRA's work are rural women, who are primarily responsible for the crop's production and post harvest handling."
