BLEANSA - An EverGreen Agriculture & Agroforestry Network for Southern Africa

  1. 1. BLEANSA - An EverGreen Agriculture & Agroforestry Network for Southern Africa
  2. 2. What BLEANSA • BLEANSA is an acronym for Building a Large Evergreen Agriculture Network for Southern Africa
  3. 3. BLEANSA Programme objectives  To create a network of organisations and innovation platforms for coordination of research and development in agroforestry;  To review experiences gained from past research, refine and optimize EverGreen agriculture, distil the experiences into policy recommendations, and share them widely;  To sensitize policy makers to develop policies which facilitate the wide-scale promotion and adoption of EverGreen agriculture;  To mobilize extension staff, farmers and other land users and scale- up EverGreen Agriculture in southern Africa.  To investigate and pilot alternative farm income streams from trees to optimise the economic, environmental and social outcomes of the various EverGreen Agriculture packages.  To build the R&D capacity of the national institutions (including tertiary institutions) in EverGreen Agriculture.
  4. 4. Long term Objectives of the BLEANSA Network?  To be an EverGreen Agriculture and Agroforestry information hub for southern Africa  To capacitate agricultural development agencies with knowledge and information on EverGreen Agriculture and Agroforestry and to scale up and out across southern Africa.  To continuously review new research results from different countries or regions, to refine and adapt for local conditions and where necessary distil experiences into policy recommendations, and share widely  To continuously sensitise development agencies to lobby policy makers to develop/ policies which facilitate the wide-scale promotion and adoption of EverGreen agriculture & Agroforestry

  8. 8. Agroforestry or HorticoForestry?
  9. 9. Agroforestry and HorticoForestry? Agricultural extension workers visit a farmer practising conservation agriculture with trees as part of capacity strengthening in Malawi Tree-crops intercrops: Bambara nut- moringa intercropping (above) and citrus intercrop (right).
  10. 10. Pilot testing integration of Fertiliser trees into the FISP in Malawi • Pilot project initiated in 2014/15. • Initially we used Tephrosia as a fertiliser tree but we have plans to include Gliricidia. • Tephrosia planted in a relay. • Targeted 6,206 farmers in the FISP • Targeted 3,794 farmers who were not on the subsidy.
  11. 11. Future Directions of the Network • In the last 2 decades – regional blocks have gotten closer and cooperation among countries within blocks in almost every sphere of life is now the norm. • How can we share information and avoid duplication or ‘reinventing a wheel’ • What can we learn from each other’s scaling-up strategies • How can we accelerate scaling up and out of EverGreen Agriculture and Agroforestry
