The Land Tenure desk of IFAD, in collaboration with CGIAR centers, is pleased to invite you to the second in a webinar series to explore and discuss good collaboration practices between IFAD and CGIAR centers in the areas of land and natural resource governance, planning and management.
Date: Wed, 13 Oct 2020
Time: 11:00-12:15 Central European Time
Where: On Zoom
This webinar will take us to Niger, Mali, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania, where the World Agroforestry (ICRAF), International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), International Crop Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) have been working with IFAD and partners on research on restoration of degraded land for food security and poverty reduction in East Africa and the Sahel.
This project aimed to achieve transformative outcomes by placing farmers and pastoralists at the center of land restoration efforts and agricultural research. Farmers and pastoralists in Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Niger and Tanzania implemented on-farm planned comparisons to test and innovate land management practices that restore agricultural productivity and ecosystem health. Radically different to past development approaches, planned comparisons embed research into the development and scaling process, while empowering farmers and pastoralists to restore degraded lands.
