Going to Scale : Sustainable Land Management in the Highlands of Eastern Africa

This project aims to scale up natural resource management innovations (technologies, institutional options, tools) tested on pilot sites in Ethiopia and Uganda. Researchers will identify strategies for accelerating the uptake of successful innovations; build partnerships for landscape-level adoption of successful innovations; mentor a critical mass of practitioners in action research; and devolve the structures and action-research responsibilities to national partners in the selected countries. The overall goal is to empower the rural poor to better manage their natural resources for food and income security. The project will be carried out in four districts in Ethiopia and Uganda by the African Highlands Initiative in collaboration with the Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research in Eastern and Central Africa.
