Climate-smart maize-legume farms power resilience in Africa
Family farmers, researchers, and other value chain actors have together amassed eight years of evidence on how maize and legume conservation agriculture-based sustainable intensification practices can thrive in diverse socioeconomic and agroecological environments.
Opening space for innovation through gender-smart approaches
- In 2018, GENNOVATE specialists conducted workshops, communication initiatives, and dissemination events.
- CIMMYT-led initiatives in Ethiopia are helping gender awareness and gender-sensitive approaches to spread.
- In South Asia, CIMMYT is working to promote inclusive and sustainable farming.
Targeted tools and practices to tackle climate change
Decades of research and application by scientists, extension workers, machinery specialists, and farmers have perfected practices that conserve soil and water resources, improve yields under hotter and dryer conditions, and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and pollution associated with maize and wheat farming in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
