Linking East and West African farming systems experience into a BELT of sustainable intensification

Project description

Sustainable farming in East and West Africa

Marginal land is land that is of little agricultural value because crops produced there would be worth less than any rent paid for access to the area. Helping to develop such zones in Africa is a key goal for the EU-funded EWA-BELT project. The aim is to promote the sustainable intensification of agricultural production in organic, agroforestry and mixed crop and livestock farming systems in 38 study areas of six countries belonging to East and West Africa. The project will enhance current scientific knowledge on the adaptation of new and improved traditional crops in different agroecosystems and the impacts of traditional agricultural practices on soil health.
