FLAGSHIP PROGRAM 3 (FP3): Integrated Farm And Household Management

Progress during 2018

The goal of this flagship is to capacitate stakeholders such that they can improve the productivity, profitability and sustainability of smallholder farming systems using on-farm and in-household innovations to ensure household nutritional security and enhanced income generation through integrated crop, tree and livestock production systems. Its specific objectives are:

  • To design, test and scale improved crop-tree-livestock management options and their interactions to optimize productivity and enhance resource use-efficiency;
  • To increase the productivity and agro-biodiversity in farming systems and strengthen household livelihoods through improved nutrition and dietary diversity;
  • To increase the climate resilience of farming systems through integrated soil, crop, water and nutrient management approaches;
  • To manage and conserve the natural resource base and close nutrient cycles to avoid soil fertility losses; and
  • To use (with FP1 and FP2) Innovation Platform (IP) approaches to identify opportunities for value chain enhancement.

The Cluster of Activities include:

  1. Cropping systems management
  2. Innovations for managing abiotic and biotic stresses
  3. Testing, adapting and validating options
