RISING out of poverty in Tanzania
29 July 2016
The USAID-funded and IITA-led program Africa Research in Sustainable Intensification for the Next Generation (Africa RISING) is creating opportunities for smallholder farm households to move out of hunger and poverty through sustainably intensified farming systems that improve food, nutrition, and income security, particularly for women and children. This research-for-development project is currently being implemented in Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Ghana, and Mali. In a nutshell, the project pilot-tests agricultural technologies then scales them out by putting together investment plans with development agencies.
