Sustainable Agricultural Intensification
Over the period 2013–2017, FSG team has been working with 10 African universities, institutes and government ministries in seven countries (Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania, Nigeria, Malawi, Burkina Faso, and Mali) to implement effective policy and programmatic strategies that help African farmers become more productive and food-secure. The team has also built the capacity of national policy institutes to guide and support their countries agriculture ministries and eventually accepted and managed international grants.
This research has been mainly supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation through the GISAIA project.
