In this project, ICRAF will undertake the following activities:
1. Collect and review soco-economic and biophysical data from existing projects; work with farmers to identify barriers and incentives to adoption and develop a menu of suitable climate-smart practices.
2. Develop capacity of farmers, farmer groups and development and extension practitioners for increased crop-livestock-tree productivity using climate smart practices through training and demonstration sites.
3. Measure baseline ecosystem characteristics and monitor changes using the Land Health Surveillance Framework and employ Greenhouse Gas flux measurements.
