Research activities: On-farm technologies in social context – improving local adaptive capacities and inclusive scaling mechanisms
This area of work focuses on providing technologies and digital services – such as climate information, insurance, and credit – that enable smallholder producers to manage and act against climate risks. Interdisciplinary analyses of on-farm technology packages support inclusive scaling of resilient low-emission practices, while biophysical performance measurements are used to assess their efficacy. In measuring impact, researchers are focusing in particular on socioeconomic factors including gender and youth.
