In 2012, GRET continued its agricultural development activities improving the food security of populations in southern Madagascar and natural resource management around Mananara Nord National Park. Its efforts to combat malnutrition entered a new phase on September 26, 2012, with the founding general assembly for the social company Nutri’Zaza ensuring the sustainability of the network of restaurants for babies set up as part of the NutriMad project.
In 2012, GRET began crosscutting reflections on complementary currencies and their use within these projects in Madagascar. Finally, it took part in organizing the science month on energy at the Institut Français de Madagascar.
