    Senegal

    This paper analyzes integrated crop-livestock farming systems in dryland regions of Senegal using household survey data and whole farm household modeling. It focuses on the Kaffrine and Thies regions, which exhibit differences in cultivated land area, staple crops grown, and livestock holdings. The analysis identifies region-specific opportunities to sustainably enhance productivity, resilience, and food security. The mechanistic model incorporates factors like crop mixes, livestock herd dynamics, climate impacts, economics, and labor to simulate entire farms.

    The food systems are not only central to our daily lives but also act as a major driver of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; it generates more than a third of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. As the world aims to achieve the goal of holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels, there is a need to identify, prioritize and scale innovations that can contribute to food systems transformation and generate SDG co-benefits.

    Evaluation of Pea seed-borne mosaic virus (PSbMV, genus Potyvirus, family Potyviridae) seed transmission rate among 62 different lentil genotypes was carried out during 2021-2023 at Amhara Regional Agricultural Research Institute, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. Seed transmission rates among lentil genotypes ranged from 0.0 to 36.4%. Released lentil varieties (Alemaya and Derso) showed high levels of seed transmission rates (13.5% and 7.1%, respectively).

    This Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is designed for Excellence in Agronomy (EiA) Use Case teams with an interest in developing gender- and youth-responsive agronomic solutions. The SOP is a guide to help Use Case teams move from each step in their workflows when designing, validating, and piloting their Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) to ensure they can develop gender- and youth-responsive agronomic solutions by the end of their Use Case.

    Agriculture plays a major role in economic growth, but it is also an important source of greenhouse gas emissions in Kenya. To achieve Kenya’s NDC target of cutting GHG emissions by 32% by 2030 relative to business-as-usual (BAU) of 143 MtCO2 eq, there is need to identify and promote scalable innovations for food system emissions reduction. The CGIAR Initiative on Low-Emission Food Systems (Mitigate+) can contribute towards Kenya’s NDC. The Mitigate+ Initiative aims to reduce annual global food system emissions by 7% by 2030. Kenya is among the prioritized countries for the initiative.

    Despite the potential importance of seed quality to agricultural productivity growth, many governments in sub-Saharan Africa lack the capacity to expand quality assurance systems even where there is expressed interest. This brief summarizes the key insights from a recent study in Nigeria. The evidence points toward the benefits of pursuing balanced, flexible seed quality assurance systems rather than focusing singularly on expanding rigorous seed certification systems, as the country has done until recently.

    The highlands of North Shoa in Amhara region are dominated by cereals (wheat, barley and tef) followed by food legumes. The productivity of cereals and food legumes is low due to biotic and abiotic factors as well as insufficient input supplies like planting materials and other inputs. Farmers are trying to include vegetatively propagated horticultural crops (tubers, bulbs, and fruit trees) into the farming systems. Horticultural crops are very important to diversify diets, incomes and reduce risks of cereal and legume crop production.

    The whole world has experienced a series of global and local crises since 2019, and Kenya has been no exception. Before the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, poverty and food poverty rates in the country had been declining steadily, falling from 52.3 percent to 36.1 percent and from 38.3 percent to 26.7 percent, respectively, between 1997 and 2016 (KNBS 2007, 2018). Income inequality also declined in the period from 1994 to 2015/16 (KNBS 2020). Estimates suggest that, since then, progress in poverty reduction has reversed, as a result of COVID-19 (Nafula et al.

    Sheep fattening is a practice that involves feeding and managing sheep for a specific time to increase their weight and improve their quality of meat production. In Ethiopia, particularly in rural areas, sheep fattening is a popular business venture among small-scale farmers. It provides an opportunity for farmers to generate income and improve their livelihoods. The practice is also important for meeting the increasing demand for meat in the country, which is expected to grow in the coming years due to population growth and urbanization.

    This report presents the findings of qualitative assessments conducted on inequitable norms that restrict women’s capacities to build economic resilience to climate change challenges in Nigeria. The study sought to answer the following question: What gender norms prevent women from building economic resilience to
    climate change challenges in agrifood systems (AFSs), and to what extent do these discriminatory biases exist at different institutional levels?
