PROFEIS-Senegal presented at roundtable on smallholder-centred research

Agrecol-Afrique was invited by REPAOC, a network of NGOs in West and Central Africa with base in Senegal, to present the work of PROFEIS-Senegal at a roundtable on the role of smallholder farmers in agricultural innovation. This was a policy-influencing event held on 1 August 2013 in Dakar in the framework of the EU-funded project INSARD (Including Smallholders in Agricultural Research for Development). Djibril Thiam explained the aims, structure and approach of PROFEIS-Senegal and presented an example of farmer innovation in the face of climate change: growing mango seedlings in Piliostigma shrubs to protect the seedlings from drying out and thus improving their survival rate.
