Notes[edit | edit source]

What are the unique/strong aspects of our research approach?

  • the 'race track' aspect of the conceptual framework
  • 'whole farm' focus
  • diagnosis and interventions
  • integration of components
  • it connects together a set of (not always new) concepts
  • focus on scalability
  • it tackles dynamic changes over time
  • any crop, any value chain ... demand driven
  • three regions
  • a priori characterization will help us to scale (by design)
  • M&E (robust data and tools) in from the beginning
