Day TWO [15 September]-Review [progress with implementation of ESA workplan sub-activities

Outcome 4. Functionality of input and output markets and other institutions to deliver demand-driven sustainable intensification research products improved
Output 4.1 Access to profitable markets for smallholder farming communities and priority value chains facilitated
Activity 4.1.1: Conduct comprehensive value-chain analysis with a specific focus on SI technologies

Outcome 4. Functionality of input and output markets and other institutions to deliver demand-driven sustainable intensification research products improved
Activity 4.1.2: Conduct a value chain stakeholder analysis (stakeholder mapping)
Activity 4.1.3: Develop a value chain enhancement strategy (including collective action approaches, contractual arrangements, and standardization)
Activity 4.1.4: Identify and evaluate existing mechanisms that inform farmers about dynamic market needs
Activity 4.1.5: Conduct an analysis of the existing baseline survey data and supplement them with qualitative surveys from target regions

Outcome 5. Partnerships for the scaling of sustainable intensification research products and innovations
Output 5.1 Opportunities for the use and adoption of sustainable intensification technologies identified for relevant farm typologies
Activity 5.1.1: Farmer participatory experimentation with crop and soil management and integrated crop-livestock technologies in on-farm situations
Activity 5.1.2: Use farm trial data to apply crop simulation models and assess performance over space and time, including assessment of climate-smart technologies to establish the potential for adaptation and mitigation
Activity 5.1.3: Establish adaptive field experiments with mineral and crop/animal-derived organic manure
Activity 5.1.4: Demonstrate the use and impact of crop residues, forages, and other organic resources as animal feed and nutrient resources
Activity 5.1.5: Use crop-livestock models for trade-off analysis
Activity 5.1.6: Disseminate best-fit integrated crop-livestock technologies to reach and have an effect on small-scale farmers in a landscape context
  • Sub-activity Small-scale piloting of FarmMATCH – a framework for typology-based targeting and scaling of agricultural innovations. (Matching Agricultural Technologies to Farms and their Context)-J.Groot
Activity 5.1.7: Conduct cost-benefit and gender analysis coupled with other socioeconomic analyses to identify and quantify adoption constraints and opportunities for different farmer contexts

Output 5.2 Strategic partnerships with public and private initiatives for the diffusion and adoption of research products
Activity 5.2.1: Map and assess relevant stakeholders to establish dialogue for the exploration of mutual synergies for scaling delivery of validated technologies
Activity 5.2.2: Leverage/link and integrate (engagement and outreach) with existent initiatives including Government extension systems to support and encourage the delivery pathways
Sub-activity Partnership with Islands of Peace for increasing the adoption of good agricultural practices (GAP) in vegetable production and improved nutrition - S.N'Danikou

Output 5.3 Gender-sensitive decision support tools for farmers to assess technology-associated risk and opportunities used by partners
Activity 5.3.1: Identify and communicate gender-sensitive decision support technologies in the context of different farm typologies

Output 5.4: A technology adoption, monitoring, evaluation, and learning framework for use by the project team and scaling partners released [led by IFPRI and used by project partners]
Activity 5.4.1: Monitor and modify the progress of technology adoption process towards scaling
