Abstract In collaboration with AR partners, contribute to the integration of R&D activities at project level and the joint planning & implementation of activities. This may include the following: • In collaboration with ILRI, plan and carry out nutrient analysis of crop residues suitable as animal feed such as BROAD BEANS residues and wheat straw (led by ILRI) • In collaboration with CIAT, follow up on value chain work on priority crops and livestock and contribute to the development of value chain activities (led by CIAT) • In collaboration with IWMI, explore the use of small scale irrigation facilities for the production of high value crops such as potato during off season periods (led by IWMI) • Identification and exploitation of potential synergies between CIP’s AR component and the Humid Tropics program • Explore opportunities with CIMMYT, ICARDA and national partners to initiate joint system level R&D activities.

Project title Contribute to the integration of AR activities into coherent project programmes.
Project abstract In 2014, participatory community analyses (PCA) were undertaken by multi-disciplinary facilitation teams in 8 kebeles in the Amhara, Tigray, Oromia and SNNPR regions, producing a list of priority farming enterprises, their current bottlenecks, as well as farmer-perceived opportunities for improving income, food security and/or reducing overall risks by intensifying farm enterprises. The PCA was carried out in discussions with kebele members and local leaders, with over 250 men, women and young people. Feedback on the results will be given to the farmers and future participatory planning and implementation of activities based on the results of the PCA and feedback sessions.
