Final Report - AFRICANUANCES (Exploring tradeoffs around farming livelihoods and the environment: the AfricaNUANCES framework)

Project ID: 3729
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

Agriculture productivity in Africa should increase in order to meet the population demands and to support sustainable rural livelihoods. A hurdle towards this direction is the significant heterogeneity of the farming systems, which complicates the formulation of integrated solutions.

The AFRICANUANCES project, funded by the European Commission, aimed to incorporate deviating variances and determine best practices suitable for different farms and varying conditions within them. An innovative framework was therefore developed, tested and evaluated.

This final activity report presents the project strategic, technical and scientific objectives and summarises the undertaken activities. The document also analyses the utilised multidisciplinary approach and provides an overview of the developed framework. Finally, the intentions for further use and the applied dissemination strategy are highlighted.
