Published: 18 September 2017

A writeshop arranged by AgriFoSe2030  was held in Addis Abeba in Ethiopia 11-15 September. The goal was to write about success stories where research was translated into policy and practice.

Researchers from Theme 2 Multifunctional Landscapes in the AgriFoSe2030 program aim to put together a catalog of success stories from their existing research, where different types of multifunctional land-use systems have proven to be a success in relation to food security.

Examples of land use systems are maize based mixed cropping systems, fish farming in agriculture, and shea production in parklands. The researchers brings forward stories from Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Burkina Faso.

The product from this activity is expected end of 2018. Stay tuned!
