The ABN's Vision: "Vibrant and resilient African communities rooted in their own biological, cultural, and spiritual diversity, governing their own lives and livelihoods, in harmony with healthy ecosystems." [1] ABN's two international partners are the Gaia Foundation and GRAIN. [2]

In June 2012 it was reported that a new film from the African Biodiversity Network (ABN) and the Gaia Foundation, narrated by actor Jeremy Irons, "is set to explode pervasive myths about agriculture, development and Africa's ability to feed herself." The film is titled "Seeds of Freedom". [3]
