Project final report
Developing integrated options and accelerating scaling up of agroforestry for improved food security and resilient livelihoods in Eastern Africa - Trees for Food Security - 2 - Final report
This project aimed to improve food security and smallholder livelihoods through the adoption of locally adapted agroforestry systems in key landscapes in Ethiopia, Rwanda and Uganda.
While farmers want greater diversity of trees on their farms, adoption constraints include lack of access to appropriate knowledge, financing options and markets, limited water resources, free-range grazing and weak local institutions. This phase of the Trees for Food Security project (T4FS) built on the activities from phase one and focused on tree diversity and integrating tree management with value-chain development, better water management, and new approaches to govern livestock management.
