Sustainable and resilient farming systems intensification in the Eastern Gangetic Plains (SRFSI)

This project aims to reduce poverty in the Eastern Gangetic Plains by making smallholder agriculture more productive, profitable and sustainable while safeguarding the environment and involving women.
The SRFSI Project is a collaborative venture between the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT).
More than 20 partners representing research, development and educational sectors are engaged to accomplish the objectives. These partners are expected to answer two questions:
(i) can farm management practices based on the principles of conservation agriculture system intensification (CASI) increase smallholder crop productivity and resilience?
(ii) can institutional innovations that strengthen adaptive capacity and link farmers to markets and support services for both women and men farmers accelerate change processes?
