AIBIS’ goal therefore is to contribute to efforts aimed at achieving sustainable development through promotion of agroforestry and food sovereignty, revival of using indigenous knowledge to sustain biodiversity and safeguard indigenous seeds and herbal medicines, promotion of safer and sound methods of chemicals management,  and advocating for relevant laws and policies that safeguard the rights of small holder farmers, artisanal miners, women, youth and the environment. 

To achieve its objectives, AIBIS will engage in action-oriented research, documentation, training and information dissemination using various methods including capacity building for community volunteers, establishment of community learning centres and demonstration sites, stakeholder engagements and policy advocacy.

AIBIS works through building synergies with both local and international networks to harness benefits associated with collaborative interventions.
