IMPLEMENT AT SCALE
Resilient Food Systems promotes the scaling-up of proven sustainable practices which harmonise agricultural and environmental outcomes to transform landscapes in Africa and identify and demonstrate balance between food demands and vital ecosystem services. The programme does so by identifying and testing scaling mechanisms via two priority intervention pathways: Value Chains and Rural Advisory Services.
PRIORITY INTERVENTION PATHWAYS
The Value Chain approach is an increasingly important way of conceptualising and structuring rural development interventions in the region. This pathway focuses on the value of diversification and low external input options while still leveraging the power of market opportunities. This component builds on existing experience in agri-food value chains in the continent and supports strong partnerships.
Rural Advisory Services leverage existing rural advisory services platforms to identify operational and ultimately self-sustaining models of capacity building in the region for Integrated Natural Resource Management (INRM) for smallholder production.
