Anthony Whitbread, Leigh Winowiecki, Enrico Bonaiuti. (28/8/2019). Applying the Research in Development Approach to Scale Land Restoration and Achieve the LDN targets. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
Successful land restoration – which must be undertaken to achieve the SDGs and UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration goals – needs to be taken to scale by reaching large numbers of people in farming communities and by covering the huge areas of degraded landscapes in the developing world. This event will focus on the innovative Research in Development approach that embeds research within development programmes by constructing co-learning cycles amongst partners in order to boost and sustain impact. The speakers will give examples of farmer-led land restoration innovations scaled through the Research in Development approach across sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and South Asia as key pathways to addressing the severe land degradation that affects the livelihoods of some of the world’s most vulnerable people – those living in the drylands. It will highlight how transformative outcomes can be achieved by placing farmers and communities at the center of land restoration efforts and connecting these to livelihood options.
