The research methods support (RMS) project is all about increasing the effectiveness of agroecological research done by the CCRP. The team works the many individuals and groups within the program who need support designing research, handling and analyzing data, and using the results. Sometimes, the diverse activities in which RMS gets involved come together in […]
A team of researchers at Bioversity International has continued to develop the “tricot” approach to research with farmers. The team developed and validated prototypes to make the process clearer to farmers, having found that farmers were more motivated to participate if they had a full understanding of the research cycle. The ClimMob digital platform, which […]

This guidance document on Theories of Change is for the use of CCRP projects. A ToC is a product and a process where stakeholders develop, monitor,research,utilize,and evaluate theories. This enables learning by explaining mechanisms of how, why,and in what context an intervention achieves or contributes to impact.A Theory of Change (ToC) has three main objectives […]
The AKH site includes profiles of people and initiatives working on agroecology. If you would like to have an innovative farmer or particular success story resulting from your project featured on the AKH, please view the Guidelines Agroecology Profiles.

The CCRP has created a social science methods handbook for agronomists.Â The handbook helps scientists trained in the biological sciences develop a foundation for using the social sciences in their work to help evaluate and make meaning out of their results.
CCRP supports research in agroecological intensification (AEI), which aims to improve the performance of agriculture systems by integrating ecological principles into farm management. Click below to learn more.
