Promoting Resilient Agroforestry Systems in Uganda: Insights from Fieldwork
- Impact Area
The D4RABs project aims to transform banana monocultures by incentivizing and empowering farmers to co-design and adopt an innovative polyculture concept to enhance resilience and ecological functionality of banana landscapes. Polyculture is a farming practice that involves growing multiple crops together in the same place at the same time with different arrangements. D4RABs will promote sustainable biodiverse agricultural practices by integrating diverse native and other understory tree species with banana cultivation. This will improve soil and crop health and mitigate the impacts of climate change for improved resilience of the systems.
