Can you imagine walking for miles with a heavy load of mangoes on your head? This used to be a reality for Puse. Shes a mango farmer in a tiny tribal village in Odisha, India and cultivates two varieties of high-quality mangoes. On a good day, she would earn INR 8 for every kilogram of mangoes. In 2016, she became part of a producer group that organizes and trains farmers in the area. Puse, whos never stepped foot in a school, learned harvest techniques , book-keeping, grading, sorting and packaging of produce. Since joining the collective, she not only increased her yield, but also the value of her mangoes. Earning more than INR 40 per kg of mango now, she has a stable income and can provide for her three children. UNDP India | Biju Boro

What do cucumbers, mustard, and almonds have in common? At first sight, very little. But they all share one thing: they rely on the work of bees that unknowingly fertilize plants as they move from flower to flower. But bees and other pollinators are vanishing. Pesticides, climate change, diseases, and habitat loss threaten their very existence. To save our bees and our crops, we as humans must change our behavior and manage our natural resources better.
