Chibonga also explains how smallholder farmers can drive agricultural research initiatives responding to their needs. NASFAM is a farmer-directed business system based on the individual participation of over 100,000 Malawian smallholders. Finally Chibonga shares the lessons learnt from his participation to the EU-ACP Economic Partnership Agreements negotiations by pointing out the main challenges and opportunities of such trade agreement for Malawi.
On the 14th of November 2013, Chibonga held a presentation on "the knowledge transfer as a two-way street" as part of the Brussels Briefing on the "Farmer-driven research to improve food and nutrition security" organized by CTA Brussels at the Jacques Delors Building (in Brussels).
