Katrien Descheemaeker, Kumar Shalander. (30/5/2019). Innovations and tools supporting GLDC systems modelling and sustainability assessment activities final report.
This innovation fund identified criteria and indicators for analyzing sustainable intensification that could be applicable across the farming systems in the regions. Common and region-specific indicators will be identified, and then quantified for a set of GLDC-specific options; characterized current crop-livestock production and marketing systems for selected locations in West and East Africa using ongoing and past studies based on information from household surveys and focus group discussions. Indicators in the different domains of SI will be quantified so that systems can be compared; and used the system characterization to inform the parameterization of whole farm models, which will be used in scenario analysis to explore effects of different interventions (such as crop-livestock integration) on system resilience, productivity, environmental health, income, nutrition and social and gender equity.
