This project aims to improve understanding on the response of men and women farmers to changing weed dynamics due to Conservation Agriculture-based Sustainable Intensification (CASI) adoption in the Eastern Gangetic Plains (EGP) of South Asia.
- Provide farmers’ perspectives on CASI for agricultural research and development professionals and decision makers working to improve livelihoods of farm families in the region through equitable and sustainable intensification of agriculture.
- Collect quantitative and qualitative primary data on farmers’ practical knowledge and experience and the gendered implications for weed management under CASI implementation. Which will be applicable to evidence-based planning in the region, as well as serve as resource for other similar areas.
- Produce a scientific publication on farmers’ knowledge, attitude, practices, and intra-household decision-making for CASI implementation, with focus on the changing weed dynamics, inputs demand, labour use and household resource mobilisation.
- Release policy recommendations outlining the synthesis and implications of gendered decision-making on weed management, changing household resource mobilisation, and knowledge, attitude and practices for equitable and sustainable intensification.
