Abstract

WP1: produce digital pedagogical resources to be freely available online, on ecological intensification of agricultural practices in forested landscapes. These resources include concepts from agriculture, agroforestry and forestry sciences, agrarian diagnosis approach, and methods of analysis of farmers’ decision-making process.

WP2: produce tools to conduct spatialized technical, social and economic analyses of rural livelihoods at plot, household and landscape scales, based on digital devices used by the partners: Olympe, Map village. In an open science approach, develop a web platform (in three languages: French, English, Spanish) including these tools and an online database to be fed on a voluntary basis.

WP3: validate the tools produced by WP2 through participatory action research with students and local farmers trained by the high-education partners of the project in WP1.

This project also aims at building long-term international partnerships within the research consortium. Together we will prepare an answer to a broader call from H2020 in 2017. This second proposal will focus on implementation and use of the knowledge and tools produced in Forecast in a large set of sites, to reach our medium and long term objectives.
