The Agroecological Assessment Process in the ESAf CoP
CCRP generates knowledge based on principles of agroecology (AE) to support farmers to have improved nutrition and income in a sustainable way. This is achieved through knowledge co-creation using farmer research networks which include extension, research and farmers, and through collaborating between different types of institutions and people in communities of practice. In the ESAf COP, although projects were dealing with different aspects of agroecological intensification (AEI), their understanding of what agroecology really meant differed. We held a workshop in Arusha in July 2019 that focused on improving the understanding of AE and what it means for research in projects in the region.
