The Route to Food Initiative, a program component of the Heinrich Boell Foundation, launched a special edition of the Chakula Magazine, a graphic novel entitled “The Blind Spot” that brings to life the ways in which politics plays out in Kenya’s food system in the form of a visually compelling political drama set in a fictional future county called Kajibora
Who we are
Perspectives Africa is a publication series jointly produced by the offices of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung in Africa. With these series, we intend to provide a global readership with an understanding of African perspectives, as well as an analysis of global trends and greater insights into developments and current political issues across the African region.
The latest edition of Perspectives "African Feminisms across Generations" is a collaboration between the Gender Focal Persons (HBF staff members who serve as resource persons on gender issues) from our four offices in Africa and the Africa Division at our head office in Berlin. The idea for the edition was born out of a strategy to collectively develop an approach to gender-related political goals that is rooted in feminist realities, thinking and narratives specific to the African continent.
The Atlas series is a publication series jointly produced by the head office in Berlin and contextualized to the East African region. With these series, we intend to provide a readership in Africa with an understanding of local realities, facts and figures as well as an analysis of global trends and greater insights into developments and current political issues across the region.
Our latest Atlas edition, Pesticides Atlas, gives new information on the use of HHPs in Kenya. It reveals which pesticides are most used and most toxic, as well as which crops require hazardous pesticides for pest control. The Atlas also provides critical evidence to legislators and the wider public about pesticide use and their potential risk in Kenya. It shows where progressive changes can be – and to a limited extent already are – successfully implemented.
