Sustainable Intensification of Key Farming Systems in the Sudano-Sahelian Zone of West Africa

Farming Intensification Ghana Mali

International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA)

Titre : Sustainable Intensification of Key Farming Systems in the Sudano-Sahelian Zone of West Africa

Pays : Ghana : Mali
Localisation : Upper East, Upper West, and Northern Region of Ghana, and Sikasso Region (Bougouni, Yanfolila, Koutiala districts) in Mali.

Date/Durée : Start : 01 October 2011 // 30 September 2020

Objectif
The overall aim is to provide pathways out of hunger and poverty for smallholder families through sustainably intensified farming systems that sufficiently improve food, nutrition, and income security, particularly for women and children, and conserve or enhance the natural resource base.

Résultas attendus
* Research output 1 : Situation Analysis and Programme-wide Synthesis. Activities under this output aim (i) at ensuring that best-bet or best-fit interventions are aligned to priority constraints to improved livelihoods and to the prevailing livelihood and production environment conditions and (ii) at developing a program-wide synthesis related to the lessons learned across the various target areas.
* Research output 2 : Integrated Systems Improvement. Activities under this output will test, validate, and adopt specific (combinations of) interventions aiming at farming system improvements in terms of productivity, income, and natural resource status.
* Research output 3 : Scaling and Delivery of Integrated Innovation. While the first two outputs will generate integrated technology combinations that are effectively targeted to farmer’s real development needs, the scaling and delivery output will develop appropriate approaches for scaling out innovations, taking into account the often complex nature of system interventions.
* Research output 4 : Integrated M and E Process. A participatory M and E framework will ensure that the outcomes related to the various outputs are clearly understood, that lessons learned from one output are fed back into other outputs, and that the linkages between the various outputs are operationalized.
