Bees for Development promotes sustainable beekeeping to combat poverty and to build sustainable, resilient livelihoods. We support beekeepers to maintain environments that are good for bees, for biodiversity, and for people. We focus on simple methods of sustainable beekeeping, always using local bees and local materials.
Based in Monmouth in the UK, Bees for Development has now worked in more than fifty countries world-wide. In addition to our own projects, we undertake beekeeping project work on behalf of, and provide advice to, the World Bank, United Nations FAO and IFAD, EU, DFID, USAID and other international organisations. Closer to home, they were instrumental in the establishment of the campaigning organisation, Bee Friendly Monmouthshire.
