Day ONE [14 September]-Review [progress with implementation of ESA workplan sub-activities

Outcome 1. Productivity, diversity, and income of crop‒livestock systems in selected agroecologies enhanced under climate variability
Output 1.1 Demand-driven, climate-smart, integrated crop‒livestock research products (contextualized technologies) for improved productivity, diversified diets, and higher income piloted for specific typologies in target agroecologies
Activity 1.1.1: Assess and iteratively improve resilient crop-crop and crop-livestock integration systems

Activity 1.1.2: Evaluate and implement pathways that are effective at improving access to seeds and clonal materials of modern varieties of legumes, cereals, vegetables, forages, and livestock
Output 1.2 Demand-driven, labor-saving, and gender-sensitive research products to reduce drudgery while increasing labor efficiency in the production cycle piloted for relevant typologies in target areas
Activity 1.2.1: Support local partners through training on appropriate drudgery-reducing technology delivery. No sub-activity was planned for 2019-2020.

Output 1.3. Tools (including ICT-based) and approaches for disseminating recommendations in relation to above research products, integrated in capacity development
Activity 1.3.1:Conduct extrapolation domain analysis based on GIS, agroecology, and crop model-generated information to establish the potential of technologies for geographical reach

Outcome 2. Natural resource integrity and resilience to climate change enhanced for the target communities and agroecologies
Output 2.1. Demand-driven research products for enhancing soil, land, and water resource management to reduce household/community vulnerability and land degradation piloted in priority agroecologies
Activity 2.1.1: Characterize current practices in ESA through identifying formal and informal arrangements for access to and use of water and land resources
  • Sub-activity Assessing buffer and adaptive capacity to harness resilience of different farm types]] - J.Groot

Output 2.2 Innovative options for soil, land and water management in selected farming systems demonstrated at strategically located learning sites
Activity 2.2.1: Set up demonstration and learning sites in target ESA communities

Outcome 3. Food and feed safety, nutritional quality, and income security of target smallholder families improved equitably (within households)
Output 3.1 Demand-driven research products to reduce postharvest losses and improve food quality and safety piloted in target areas
Activity 3.1.1: Conduct packaging and delivery of postharvest technologies through community and development partnerships with an iterative review, refining, and follow-up
