Scaling-up evergreen agriculture to enhance maize-mixed and agropastoral farming systems in Tanzania and Malawi

In 2012, Africa RISING funded an ‘early win’ project in Tanzania and Malawi led by the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF).

The project aims to build an evidence base for scaling up EGA to increasing crop productivity, fodder supply and resilience of the maize-mixed and agropastoral farming systems in Tanzania and Malawi.

The outputs will be:

  • Synthesis of existing knowledge on socio-economic, cultural, and policy factors influencing the success of EGA (April-August, 2012)
  • Documentation of biophysical factors underpinning the success of EGA (April-August, 2012)
  • Analysis of capacity and models to sustainable tree seed and seedling supply systems (June-September, 2012)
  • Analysis of the capacity of farmers to practice EGA and use weather information (April-July, 2012)

More ‘early win’ projects


The Africa RISING program comprises three linked research-for-development projects, funded by the USAID Feed the Future Initiative, and aiming to sustainably intensify mixed farming systems in West Africa (Southern Mali and Northern Ghana), the Ethiopian Highlands and East and Southern Africa (Tanzania, Zambia and Malawi).

To produce some short-term outputs and to support the longer term objectives of the projects, in 2012 Africa RISING funded several small, short-term projects in each of the regions. More information.
