In 2015 ICRAF undertook drylands research in two transects of the West African Sahel (WAS) and the Ethiopian action site in East and Southern Africa (ESA). The research was supported through 0.7 million USD of W1/2 funding and 6.8 million USD of bilateral and W3 (SmATScaling, McKnight, Africa Rising, Evergreen Maize Africa, Biodev, DryDev and Land Resto-ration) funded projects. Together these activities contributed (see Table 1) to all four poverty re-lated Intermediate Development Outcomes (IDO 1.1 increased resilience of the poor to climate change and other shocks, 1.2 enhanced small holder market access, 1.3 increased incomes and employment and 1.4 increased productivity), all three IDOs related to food, nutrition and health (IDO 2.1 improved diets for poor and vulnerable people, 2.2 improved food safety and 2.3 im-proved human and animal health through better agricultural practices) and all three Natural Re-source Management IDOs (IDO 3.1 Natural capital enhanced and protected especially from cli-mate change, 3.2 enhanced benefits from ecosystem services and 3.3 more sustainable man-aged agro-ecosystems).
