West Africa Review & Planning workshop

Towards Achieving an Integrated Systems Approach


Northern region

  • Double-check current plans with the whole team

  • Firm up research hypotheses

  • Agree on some key elements of the design (e.g. RCT) to test hypotheses

  • Who should be part of the research teams?

  • Send a team member to UER and UWR (Augustine, Bonny?)

  • Mali group


Northern region

  • Looking at what you developed yesterday, formulate (max) 2 research hypotheses that will help develop the (crop-soil-livestock-market-nutrition) concept note which help answer the AR research design hypotheses?

  • Plan activities for the next years that help answer these research hypotheses (i.e. research design, counterfactuals…) Be more specific about year 2 activities

  • Who should be part of the writing and of the research teams?

  • (If enough time) Who could we partner with?

  • Ghana groups


Northern region

  • INTEGRATION: Integrating technological components into SI systems confers more benefits to small holder farmers than single components

  • ADOPTION: Integrating technological components into SI systems stimulates adoption compared to single components

  • TRADE-OFF: Offering interventions tailored to the context specific conditions lowers environmental damage

  • SEQUENCING: Right sequencing of integration of component technologies provides SI pathways

  • SCALABILITY: Agricultural SI interventions tailored to local context specific conditions are scalable to other settings

  • Africa RISING research design hypotheses


Northern region

Hypothesis

Strengthening of value chain will increase intensification of crop-soil-livestock systems through improved technologies and institutional components.

Activities(specify in table)

  • Adding value to the raw agricultural produce and by-products through processing and packaging

  • Identify and improve linkage of crop-livestock value chain actors through R4D platforms

  • Hypothesis 1…..

  • Who could we partner with around hypothesis 1?


Northern region

Hypothesis

Improved integration of crops, soils, livestock and water resources and food processing techniques in farming systems will reduce natural resource degradation and enhance food and nutrition security.

Activities (specify in table)

  • Pilot testing inorganic and organic amendments (micro dosing).

  • Evaluation soil and water conservation measures on farming systems productivity.

  • Assess pathways that will enhance quality and quantity and transfer of animal manure.

  • Test available materials in feed formulations for livestock production.

  • Hypothesis 2……


Northern region

  • Assess water, feed resource quality available and demand.

  • Testing and validating system components technology including mechanization, crop residue management etc.

  • On farm evaluation of validated technologies in mixed crop-livestock systems

  • Identifying existing constraints and opportunities that will enhance integration of crop livestock systems.

    • Activities (specify in table)


    Northern region

    • Document food consumption patterns and traditional methods of food preparations for retention and nutrient quantification.

    • Identify innovations in food preparation and new food product that will incorperate more animal food

    • Nutritional evaluation of high value vegetables.

    • End-line evaluation of all parameters.

    • Activities (specify in table)
