This description of Claude Ariste's work was prepared when Claude Ariste was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1997.
Claude Ariste is encouraging the individual fruit and vegetable producers in Burkina Faso's fresh produce sector to form cooperatives and increase their revenue through collaborative training, production, and marketing. This framework has the added benefits of enhancing nutrition for farmers and communities and contributing to the reforestation of Sahelian zones.
