Projects with partners - Niger (9)

  • African Network for Agriculture, Agroforestry and Natural Resources Education (ANAFE)

    The African Network for Agriculture, Agroforestry and Natural Resources Education (ANAFE) is a network of 127 educational institutions in Africa whose objective is to strengthen the teaching of multi-disciplinary approaches to land management. The ANAFE Coordination Unit is hosted at the International Centre for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF) headquarters in Nairobi. This provides a vantage for network management, linkages with the research and development activities of ICRAF and its partners, and convenient communication facilities.

    Envahissement des cuvettes par apports éoliens dans la région de Gouré, Sud-Est du Niger: processus, impacts et moyens de lutte Coordination: Prof B. Tychon (FUL) tychon@ful.ac.be

  • Factors influencing the development trajectories of lowlands in West Africa

    To contribute to the achievement of the Millenium Development Goals in Africa, with a particular focus in poverty alleviation and food security

  • Food legume germplasm improvement (Kabuli chickpea) for increased systems productivity

    The Government of Italy annually finances this programme as part of its support to the CGIAR centres. The budget indicated is for 2007. The project aims at increasing productivity of legumes, increasing the areas dedicated to this production in subtropical regions. Research is conducted in collaboration with National Research Centres (NARS) for plants varieties, resistant to biotic and abiotic stress and to the environment. The project also aims at contributing to reduce adverse effects of global climate change by increasing soil carbon level.

  • Improving Water Productivity of Crop-Livestock Systems of Sub-Saharan Africa

    Goal: The goal of this project is to improve livelihoods of smallholder farmers in mixed croplivestock systems, and mitigate land degradation of the semi-arid of Sub-Saharan Africa through increased productivity o fwater and improved governance of water resources. This coincides with IWMI´s mission to improve water and land resources management for food, livelihoods and nature, and IWMI, ICRISAT and ILRI´s commitment to the CGIAR priorities to develop livestock related options to improve management, conservation and use of water in Sub-Saharan Africa. Purpose: The project´s purpose is to develop and promote options for enhancing water productivity in the semi arid areas based on improved management options for livestock in mixed farming systems.

  • Mobilizing regional diversity for creating new potentials for pearl millet and sorghum farmers in West and Central Africa

    To enhance rural livelihoods and household food security in pearl millet-and sorghumgrowing areas of WCA through cultivation of adapted, higher-yielding and stable cultivars of these staple cerealsTo assist NARS in the target countries to more effectively utilize genetic diversity of locally adapted, farmer-preferred photoperiod-sensitive, pearl millet and sorghum germplasm in their breeding programs

  • SFB 308 Standortgerechte Landwirtschaft in West Afrika

    With the completion of the Special Research Program 308 on Adapted Farming in West Africa the time has come to sum up the experiences of 15 years of agricultural research. This research program, carried out by scientists from the University of Hohenheim, played a particular role in the context of agricultural research systems in West Africa. With a funding provided upon review of results and application over five phases of three years each, short-term research plans had to be drawn up with a long term perspective. Inter-institutional collaboration with international as well as national partners required fine tuning and an accommodation of plans to fit and complement existing efforts and priorities of the existing research institutions. Interdisciplinary approaches generated synergy effects.

  • Consolider la relation entre recherche universitaire et opérations de développement en renforçant les synergies entre savoirs scientifique et savoirs paysans

Wautelet UCL-Universiteit Abdou Moumouni in Niamey: “Consolidation de la relation entre la recherche universitaire et les opérations de développement en renforçant les synergies entre savoirs scientifiques et savoirs paysans”

  • Understanding the present distribution of parasitic weeds of the genus Striga and predicting its potential future geographic distribution in the light of climate and land use change.

    Goal: Provide decision support tools for present and future deployment of Striga management technologies. Purpose: To analyze and understand parameters influencing the presence or absence of Striga spp. in selected areas and predict future Striga distribution patterns.
