Hi Paulson Ronald  - welcome to the Food System Vision Prize Community!

Thank you for submitting your vision for farming without chemicals in Cameroon.

I noticed that many of the answers in your submission are quite short. I would recommend taking a look at the Food Vision Prize Toolkit and updating your application before the deadline on January 31st. The Toolkit has a lot of information, activities, and guidelines and can help you refine your Vision and make it more systemic, human-centered and well informed for the future. Here is the link to the Prize Toolkit: http://bit.ly/2X4ZxQk

Look forward to seeing your Vision evolve.
