Sub-Saharan Africa faces formidable food security and environmental challenges. Population pressure, agricultural intensification, market distortions, an unevenly supportive policy climate, and inherently low-productivity soils create a degradation spiral that underlies declining food security and environmental quality. This project includes tests of field-scale farming system components through a participatory process that incorporates co-innovation and co-design among researcher, advisors, and men and women stakeholders in Kenya and Uganda.
