Poster presentation. Book of abstracts. 2015 annual conference of European Geosciences Union (EGU).
The participation of stakeholders and the integration of scientific and local knowledge in the assessment of environmental
problems and potential solutions have been increasingly demanded by international institutions. Participatory
assessment has the potential to engender social learning among all stakeholders, including scientists,
which then has the potential to increase collaboration and the probability for adoption of good practices. Using
PRACTICE participatory assessment tool, IAPro, a number of assessment criteria were identified, selected and
weighted by local stakeholder platforms (SHPs) and scientists in 18 dryland sites distributed across 11 countries.

The International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) was established in 1977. It is one of 15 such centers supported by the CGIAR. ICARDA’s founding mandate to promote agricultural development in the dry areas of developing countries remains highly relevant today.
