Duration

January 2016 – December 2018

Objective

The project aims to:

  • Increase agricultural productivity by contributing technical expertise and concepts to improve sustainability in agriculture
  • Incorporate these technical expertise and concepts into national and international strategies

Project Description

The sector project Sustainable Agriculture (NAREN) ad­dresses sustainable production systems, genetic resources, renewable primary products, soil and water management, climate change, post-harvest protection, animal husbandry, agricultural extension, and women in agriculture. Operat­ing transregionally on behalf of the German Federal Minis­try for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the sector project provides services in all parts of the world.

Attempts to increase agricultural productivity often in­volve short-term, non-sustainable measures. Our objective is therefore to contribute technical expertise and concepts to improve sustainability in agriculture with a focus on increased productivity, and to incorporate them into na­tional and international strategies.
