Strengthening Farmer-led Research Networks in the Sahel

Prolinnova and FaReNe

The Sahel is an environmentally sensitive region and climate change is likely to worsen the situation. Farmers therefore need to adapt their agricultural methods and practices to the changing climatic conditions and their effects. Successful agro-ecological intensification leads to higher productivity and improved food and nutrition security without having negative environmental impacts. Formal agricultural research and development (ARD) gives little attention to farmers’ own innovation and focuses on research led by scientists.
