UP-SCALING/OUT-SCALING

RESULT 1:  UP-SCALING/OUT-SCALING OF APPROPRIATE ASAL KNOWLEDGE, INFORMATION AND TECHNOLOGIES PROMOTED

KALROÔÇÖs primary mandate is the development of new technologies that address identified problems/constraints. KALRO has recently developed a large number of technologies suitable for the ASAL areas and which should be released for adoption. A specific strategy for rapid dissemination of improved livestock and crop technologies to different areas simultaneously will be through collaboration and partnerships with CBOs, NGOs, and private sector and state partners. The activities under this result will be:

  • Developing procedures and modalities of collaboration/partnerships in scaling up activities for dry land crops, pasture, indigenous poultry, cattle, sheep, goats  and camels (engagement, funding, performance monitoring, reporting) and formalization of partnerships and collaborations
  • Selecting and packaging improved livestock and crop technologies for up-scaling/out-scaling to arid and semi arid areas
  • Up-scaling/ Out-scaling of livestock and crops technologies in the arid and semi arid areas
  • Adoption and impact assessment of up-scaling/out-scaling collaborations and partnerships in the arid and semi arid areas (Baselines, adoption/impact studies)
  • Management, backstopping and performance tracking of partnerships and collaborations and sharing of information and knowledge
