ICRAF in Ethiopia

  1. 1. ICRAF in Ethiopia Priorities • Bringing quality germplasm and services closer to farmers through rural resources centres. • Adding values to hillsides, unproductive exclosures and rehabilitated gullies. • Enhancing food and water security for the rural poor by engaging national partners to scale up profitable and higher food production systems through the use of trees. • Women’s livelihood improvement through agroforestry to increase women’s economic power and resilience capacity. • Improving the income of poor households by better linking them to markets. • Restoring landscapes to enhance ecosystem functions, services and resilience for better supply of food, feed, and energy, and the whole ecosystem wellbeing. Progress • Helped understand the impact of trees and management strategies on crop productivity, water resources and nutrient recycling in distinct agro-ecologies through long- term experimental trials in East Shewa and East Wellega. • Undertook temperate and tropical fruit trees research in four regions (Amhara, Oromia, South and Tigray). • Established and strengthened rural resource centres in Bako-Tibe, Bale, Atsbi and Ziway (Batu). • Engaged in watershed-based landscape restoration to transform lives and landscapes in Gergera-Atsbi. • Added value to hillsides and exclosures through the use of smart hill-top and -side water harvesting technologies and the elaboration of a climate smart management plan, including the integration of fruits, fodder, timber, firewood and fertilizer trees/shrubs. • Transformed gullies from threats into opportunities: offering livelihood options to landless youth and women. • Supported Ethiopia’s Sustainable Land Management Program with climate smart agriculture. • Established robust tree seed system and supported forest landscape restoration. Partners CGIAR is a global research partnership for a food secure future Projects • Enhancing food and water security for improved rural commercialization project • Africa-RISING (Africa- research in sustainable intensification for the next generation) program • Integrating high value fruit trees project • Enhancing Integrated Watershed Management with Climate Smart Agriculture in Gergera Watershed project • Trees for Food Security Project: bringing trees on farm and landscape After Before Low-cost water harvesting structure Water conveyer Fiji Temperate Fruit Tree Farm Wukro Saint Mary Technical College የኢትዮጵያ የግብርና ምርምር ኢንስቲትዩት Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research This poster is licensed for use under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Licence.
