(w.brooijmans2) #1

The 22nd of February the publication named ‘Sustainable intensification in smallholder agriculture: An integrated systems research approach’, edited by Ingrid Oborn, Bernard Vanlauwe, Michael Phillips, Richard Thomas, Willemien Brooijmans and Kwesi Atta-Krah, became available. Just check the publisher’s website:

Much of the work represents outputs of the three CGIAR Research Programs on Integrated Systems for the Humid Tropics, Aquatic Agricultural Systems and Dryland Systems. The chapters are based on the four themes of the international conference on integrated systems research held at IITA in Ibadan in March 2015: the conceptual underpinnings of systems research; sustainable intensification in practice; integrating nutrition, gender and equity in research for improved livelihoods; and systems and institutional innovation.
