Objectives of the project
To identify, develop and adapt legume-based agroecological intensification technologies/ practices as well as innovations for rural energy and labour efficiency for smallholders, especially women.
To identify, develop, adapt and scale innovations for transformative shifts in rural bioeconomies by generating new enterprises and rural employment (especially for youth and women) from legume-derived products and co-products.
The main outcomes of LEG4DEV are
Legume-based agroecological intensification scaling for climate-resilient productivity
Legume-based agroecological intensification scaling for food & nutrition security
Legume-based agroecological intensification scaling for water use efficiency
Rural energy and labour-efficiency transformation pathways for legume-based agroecological intensification
Legume-derived enterprises and employment for more resilient rural bioeconomies, and
Identification of policy & institutional options for transformative scaling of legume-based agroecological intensification for enhanced livelihoods and resilience.
