  2. 2. IDO: More stable and higher per capita income for intensifiable households (above an asset threshold) 1) Characterize household (HH) livelihood assets, production systems and capacity to intensify (quantitatively) and HH livelihood and production strategies 2) Develop and validate of a typology of HHs for their intensification capacity 3) Identify technologies specific to crop, tree and livestock that helps to intensify systems, increase production and pre capita income 4) Identify existing and new technologies and of-farm income diversification, adoption practices, their costs and economic benefits and document lessons 5) Experiment and demonstrate promising technologies that enhances sustainable intensification and income 6) Assess trade-offs, ex-ante impacts, for different technology options for the upstream and downstream sites and people 7) Build framers and development agents capacity, on intensification process and options in context of production systems 8) Develop out scaling strategies ( to larger scale) including mapping of recommendation domain and out scaling of promising technologies relevant to the different recommendation domain 9)Assess and document ex-post impact of the different options
  3. 3. 1) Assess household (HH) livelihood assets, production systems and vulnerability (quantitatively ) and HH livelihood and production strategies 2) Develop and validating a typology of HHs/systems/subsystem for their vulnerability 3) Assess of technologies specific to crop, tree and livestock that are suitable for different typologies and that can increase farmers/system resilience and traditional coping/adaptation mechanisms to vulnerability identified. 4)Identify and document off farm livelihood options and mechanisms for social support 5)Identify and document options/potentials for systems diversification, experimentation and demonstration the same to enhance farmers coping mechanisms to food insecurity 6)Analyse and monitoring trade-offs, ex-ante impacts, for different options 7)Develop out scaling strategies for promising interventions relevant to the different recommendation domain 8)Assess and monitor ex-post impact IDO: More resilient livelihoods for vulnerable households in marginal areas
  4. 4. IDO: Women and children in vulnerable households have year round access to greater quantity and diversity of food sources Identify availability and alternative sources of year round, sufficient and nutritious food supply to women and children in vulnerable household Test and pilot promising options and synthesizing strategies for out scaling Improve skills and capacity of households on access to sufficient and nutritious food IDO: More sustainable and equitable management of land and water resources in pastoral and agro pastoral areas Identify of key land and water management options in the pastoral and agro pastoral areas and major institutional and understanding biophysical bottlenecks for sustainable uses Pilot and demonstrating selected NRM options for their performance in terms of enhancing production capacity and providing ecosystem services in the representative systems Analyse and monitor trade-offs, ex-ante impacts, for different options and development of decision tools for improved land and water management and collective actions Build capacity on collective actions and conflict resolutions for the smallholders Develop out scaling strategies for the promising interventions relevant to the different recommendation domain
  5. 5. IDO: Impact through better functioning markets underpinning intensification of rural livelihoods 1) Characterize exiting farmers market options, networks and bottle necks 2) Assess mechanisms to improve farmers access to market information, knowledge, network 3) Farmers capacity on negations and competitiveness built IDO: More integrated, effective and connected service delivery institutions underpinning system intensification 1) Characterize institutions, partnerships and their effectiveness in terms of service delivery for system intensification, resilience and collective actions 2) Pilot convergence approach at the benchmark sites 3) Develop strategies for out scaling of the convergence ( including enabling policy mechanisms and incentives )
  6. 6. 1) Review policy and analyse gaps and consult stakeholders to fill the gaps and prioritize relevant technologies. 2)Identify policy options and use in trade off and scenario building 3)Initiate and organize agriculture related policy dialog at local, state and national and regional scales ( for cross fertilization of effective policy recommendation) 4)Prepare policy briefs on policy reforms and incentive mechanisms IDO: Policy reform removing constraints and incentivising rural households to engage in more sustainable practices that intensify and improve resilience
