🧠+🌳 How to achieve a #paradigm shift in agronomy? ➡️ FTA illustrates the #OptionsByContext approach: OxC. @fergus_sinclair & Ric Coe discuss how to address OxC interactions | Paper 👉http://ow.ly/U9Cx50ytuPT  1️⃣st requirement: accept that change is needed! @ICRAF @CIFOR

Innovation in #agronomy by large numbers of smallholder #farmers will need to accelerate if global commitments to #endhunger are to be achieved in the face of major #climate and other global changes that are both caused and impacted by #agriculture.

🍈 ‘Orphan crops’ ➡️ plant species that are economically & culturally important but are neglected by science/research because they are not widely traded commodities. That's why the African Orphan Crops Consortium (AOCC) exists! http://ow.ly/eemm50yqcaf  @ICRAF @CIFOR

Smallholder #valuechains are dynamic, changing over time in sudden, unpredictable ways as they adapt to shocks. Understanding these dynamics and adaptation is essential for these chains to remain competitive in turbulent #markets. @PIM_CGIAR

We are here in this mtg, says Lalisa Duguma @icraf, because, in the last 30 years, forest land in Central River Region has declined by 50% & in Upper River Region by 37%. It’s alarming. We know people depend on trees. @Gambia @TheGCF  @UNEnvironment1 @CIFOR @UNDP @TheGambiaVoice
