Who We Are!

Civil Society Organizations' Network for Sustainable Agriculture and Environment in East Africa (CISONET) is a Registered Non-Government Organization which was established to eradicate poverty, hunger and climate change catastrophes through Social and Economic empowerment of the Community Based Civil Society Organizations, Rural Poor smallholder Farmers and other indigenous communities to strengthening their capacity in Sustainable Agriculture and Environment in East African Region.

This organization was established on 5th January 2007 by Ugandans of diverse professional backgrounds in Agriculture and Environment among others. This came after the realization of continuous poverty, hunger and climate change catastrophes affecting the global world today due to poor agricultural practices and environmental degradation among other factors.

Therefore in order to find solutions to these challenges, the founders of CISONET deemed it necessary to have a coordinating Body for Community Based Civil Society organizations with an ultimate aim of addressing these challenges so as to improve on the Socio-Economic wellbeing of the local communities through sustainable agriculture and proper management of natural resources.
